  1. Really interested in this as I want to get back into Binoviewing. Sold my WO binoviewer and regretted selling it but the Maxbright II seems to be better so maybe it wasn't such a bad idea selling my WO Binoviewer. Avtar
  2. The WO finder bracked is fixed with just one screw into one of the two holes that are used for mounting the Tak bracket. Avtar
  3. I use a William Optics Multi Reticule Finder, it's nice and compact and you can vary the brightness.
  4. Hi Louis, I am not using a coma corrector in the 12" Dob. I was just a little surprised to see coma with the 21 ethos especially as I don't see it when using my other TV eyepieces. I will have another try when seeing permits, at the moment theres nothing but rain and clouds for the next few days. Avtar
  5. first case contains only 1.25" eyepieces and the second 2" eyepieces. The 1.25" get a lot more scope time than the 2". When I bought the 21 Ethos I thought that would get more use in the 12" Dob but it hasn't turned out that way, I prefer my 38 Panaview instead both in the 12" Dob and 120ED. The Ethos shows comet like stars in both scopes. I bought the Ethos second hand and it was pointed out to me by the seller that there was a little dent in the body of the eyepiece. I bought the eyepiece anyway as it was a good price. I'm thinking of sending it to Televue to see if they can do anything. Avtar
  6. This is a sketch I did in 2015
  7. This is the latest and hopefully the last iteration.
  8. I have sold a few items but regret selling my ZS71 ed and an OMC 140 which I bought from @Stu. I did put some other items up for sale including my 120 ED but withdrew them from sale as I felt I would regret it. I won't be putting anymore items for sale and will only buy items after careful consideration and not on impulse. Avtar
  9. Had a great session with my newly acquired C6 on an SE mount. I really like this scope wish I had got one sooner. Avtar
  10. I have 3 and none of them have any scuff marks on them although one of the adjustment knobs broke off on one of them when I tried to turn it more than I should have. Avtar
  11. Celestron C6 XLT OTA and 0.63 reducer.
  12. I have not tried it on Sirius yet, not had the opportunity as it is difficult from my location with a lot of surrounding trees. Avtar
  13. I have a 150 f8 newt which is very good at splitting doubles. Avtar
  14. I noticed those streaks as well John. I've been looking at the Aristarchus Plateau area and have been facinated by it's colour, a slight purplish brown that stands out as a square from the surrounding grey. I was using my 12" Dob with a 17.5 Morpheus and a 14 Delos. Has anybody else noticed this or am I just imagining it. Avtar
  15. Arrived today, Ethos 21. Thanks Gavin.
