    Binocular observing set-up

    All that kit for $30 ... bins, tripod, weights, deckchair ... amazing!
  2. Bought for my partner to encourage him to share my passion for astronomy, but I failed miserably. Apart from the trigger-grip ball-head that I bought secondhand, everything else was bought new and has had hardly any use so is in great condition. SOLD: Pentax 10x50 PCF WPII waterproof binoculars with focus lock, including lens caps, carry strap, original case and owner's manual. Excellent optics. See Steve Tonkin's review at http://binocularsky.com/reviews/Pentax_SP_10x50.pdf) Giotto Professional Aluminum Monopod MML 3270B. Manfrotto #222 trigger-grip ball-head. Roof prism tripod adapter. Maximum extension is 79.5"/202cm (from base of monopod to top of roof prism tripod adapter). Price: £120 Price for monopod, trigger-grip ball-head and tripod adapter: £35 Collection preferred if possible but I will post if necessary (let me know where you are and I'll check the price).
  3. Thanks, both. That's what I was trying to say. The photo is definitely much clearer than my words.
  4. My focuser has two screws so I should centre the gold HGP screw opposite the small gap between the focuser's screws?
  5. Maybe a malt whisky might help me understand the instruction
  6. I've got one of these to use with my SW200p but I can't understand the instruction that came with it: Apply 2" clamp on side opposite 1.25" clamp screw Please could someone help me out - my lack of understanding is making me feel particularly dense Many thanks Jane

    Hi Luke Photos of the prisms, taken through the T2 1.25" nosepiece. Images Prism 1 and Prism 2 are taken against a background of white paper, 3 and 4 are the view at the back of the house. I found it a bit difficult to get good photos, but the prisms are clean. Re collimation, there are collimation adjustment screws on each eyepiece holder. Here's a link to the pdf of the manual giving the details: http://www.alpineastro.com/Binoviewers/Maxbright Binoviewer Instructions.pdf Still struggling to answer your final question ... I've been using these with my solarscope, paired with 30mm eyepieces. Hope this helps.
