    Scope Eye- I Know It's Not Just Me!

    I use an eye patch for cyclops, and a hood and that works for me on the few occasions that I mono view. I also took up Old Nick's suggestion of putting the patch over the observing eye when away from the scope to protect night vision. When I binoview of course, two patches causes problems.

    What did the postman bring?

    Priceless Dave.
  9. Hi Alan, beautiful scope, congratulations. I have a lovely Japan made .965 to 1.25" reducer that you can have. Send me a PM.

    FC-100 DF Takahashi £1450

    I think that is a good idea James.

    FC-100 DF Takahashi £1450

    I didn't want to suggest that James, but Stu has hit it squarely. It is just a question of waiting for someone to decide that they want/need one.

    FC-100 DF Takahashi £1450

    And so it should have James. But for the fact that I bought one so recently, I would have snapped it up at £1500 !
  13. Hi Simon, Something else to consider, I wasn't aware of them.
  14. Cheers Simon, but I have thought of this, which is what the hacksaw is for. The nosepiece on the Denk will take a little trimming, as will the Tak 2" adapter. All millimetres in the right direction. You surely didn't think it was the Tak Tube did you ?
  15. Hi Dave, These seemed to be the perfect answer, but I have realized that they will not work for me , as the thread on the focuser tube of the FC100DC is M56. However, I have just ordered from FLO, the Baader Ultrashort 1.25"-T2 clamp, which with a light path of 11mm should save me about 15mm over the T2 clicklock that is currently fitted to the prism diagonal. That, I hope will sort the problem, if not, I have the hacksaw ready !
