  10. Zoom EP

    I have a Sky Watcher Hyperflex 9-27mm Zoom Lens for sale. Excellent EP in pristine condition. Β£40 inc P&P Constructed with 7 lens elements in 4 separate groups. Fully broadband multi-coated edge-blackened optics and internal baffling for high contrast and light transmission. Delivers a surprisingly (for a zoom eyepiece) flat well-corrected field of view with high contrast and definition. Continuously variable focal length of 9mm to 27mm. Apparent Field Of View of 60Β°-40Β°. For convenience, reference focal length positions are engraved on the eyepiece barrel. Large eye-lens element, 18mm eye-relief and soft twist-up eyecup for comfortable viewing even when wearing spectacles. Threaded to accept standard 1.25” filters.
  11. Celestron 2 x Barlow Ultima SV Lens

    Guys, This item has now been sold to a SGL member. Thanks for the interest and I do apologise for not getting back to some of you sooner. My day job involves liaison and advice on security measures and as you can imagine it's been a horrendous few weeks. So many thanks to the mod for not deleting my post!πŸ‘πŸ»

  13. Mojo gone on hearing of events in London

    Guys, Believe me it's because of citizens like the members on this site that we will seize and win the day from these religious nut jobs. Teach your kids, friends and other family members about science. Introduce them to astronomy and get them looking up in wonder at the beautiful universe we are lucky enough to inhabit. Above all, never ever pack up. To hell with them, they are few and we are legion Clear skies my friends Rick
