  1. Hi Stu, I already have a standard one so I will pass on this one. I have been thinking about the amici one for day and night use. All the best, Andrew.
  2. Hi Stu, is the Zeiss prism the amici one?
  3. PM also sent.
  4. Managed about an hour or so on Jupiter last night. Out with the Takquisition in FC76 mode. I needed to fiddle with extension tubes to get eyepieces to reach focus - 1 inch focuser travel sheesh! At least once sorted they all focus with the same arrangement. Saw the GRS on the limb at one point - salmon/orange colour. 3 - 4 bands starting to see more details the more used to looking for it I get. Seeing was variable as always. Sometimes I think my eyes are the problem as things go a bit ... er watery? Then suddenly clearer and sharper. I was getting nice views at about 120x with the ES 82º 4.7 Moved to the ES 68º 24 and scanned around enjoying non-specific stargazing. Very relaxing. Must sort out a chair!
  5. All sold. Thanks Derek and John.
  6. I love the smell of vintage glass in the evening!
  7. My Dad had a pair when we were kids. They were great. I didn't realise how good they were until I got to look through a pair of Zeiss bins. Sadly got dropped many times and went the way of all things! I still have one of the objectives on my desk that I use as a magnifying glass. Really worth a fiver!
  8. Yippee. Thanks Derek. Pm in coming.
  9. We all like a bargain.😁 I like the shape of it.
  10. Giro, smaller weight and smaller counterweight bar now sold. Thanks John.
  11. That's what I was thinking. My left eye sees more colour and my right eye is a bit sharper. I can't afford to go the bino route yet though!
  12. Although I would prefer to sell as a lot, I am prepared to split if that helps people. Derek [DRT] has dibs on the 1.6Kg weight and long 15cm bar.
  13. I just wish I had matched eyes!
  14. Was that a case you had lying around or did you buy it? It looks rather good and I like the space for books/documents idea.
