  1. Hi Sonneyboy, yes this has been sold. Cheers
  2. Yes it has an M12 to M10 thread reducer, and it also came with a black anodised bolt which I don't know what is for!
  3. SW advanced dual drives EQ5

    I have this set of dual drives for sale, with advanced hand controller (with ST4 port for guiding) Will fit EQ5, CG5 and GP series mounts £85 posted

  5. Lovely smooth and solid mount head in excellent condition and in original box £200. Pick up preferred but could post. Please enquire about postage.
  6. *SOLD* Down to my last few bits from my astro clearout. I'm reducing this frac to £200 (includes case, tube rings, SCT-T2 and T2-M48 adaptors, bahtinov mask). Frac is in good condition apart from some fading of the blue paint and one spec on the lens which is visible in the pics (beneath the 'USA') and doesn't hurt the views at all (I think it's a speck of dust between the lenses) Pick up preferred but could post. Please enquire about postage. Cheers

  13. Question about astronomik clip in filter

    Yes if it is an EF-S fitment lens, which I think it might be, it wont work with the clip in filters. The EF-S lenses have a plastic protrusion at the rear of the lens (like the pic below) which fouls the filter. The EF-S lenses have a white square on the body and the EF lenses have a red square.
  14. "Finding" Planets for Imaging

    I used an extension rube with my cam so that the camera was parfocal with my 12.5mm reticle ep. Centre planet in crosshairs, remove EP, insert cam and Barlow, done! I also used baader 2" clicklock which helps with centering consistency.
  15. Astrozap dew shield

    When I observed from a city balcony with my 8" newt I used a celestron dewshield and it was absolutely essential... I had light coming at me from all angles and it really helped to have the sheild. Also helps to flock the section of tube opposite the focuser.
