  1. I’m selling my Skywatcher 150 pl f8 Newt. I bought it new from Astroboot about 5 years ago it’s mounted on an Altair Sabre mount and steel tripod. The Altair Sabre mount I bought second hand and the steel tripod I bought new from FLO. The scope is in very good condition and the mirror is in almost new condition. I’ve added a focusing eyepiece holder for fine focus and a red dot finder is included. Price £100 cash on collection.
  2. I’m selling my 12” Revelation Dob, I bought it new from Telescope house about seven years ago. There are marks and scratches on the tube from use but the mirror is still in good condition. Included is a right angle finder. Price £50 cash on collection.
  3. I've had my 12" Dob for about 7 years and my 6" Newt for about 5 years, both have been kept in the summer house, neither have been cleaned as both mirrors still look fine in fact the 6" still looks like new. The 12" mirror dews up during the winter months but the 6" has never dewed up, this probably explains why the 6" still looks like new. Avtar
  4. I've replaced the Ethos eyecup with a winged eyecup that came with a Morpheus eyepiece which I find more comfortable. I use it in the up position. Avtar
  5. I second that. It's a great scope, I've also spent many a happy hour using it to split doubles and it is amazing on the moon and planets. Avtar
  6. Yes really relieved John as I thought the eyepiece was damaged in some way. Now I can really enjoy using it. Tonight this was the only eyepiece I used in the 12" dob and just enjoyed cruising around the sky. Avtar
  7. It was a clear night tonight and despite a full Moon I rolled out the 12" dob to try the ethos 21 once again. I put the ethos in the focuser and tightened the 2 screws to secure it and then checked to make sure it was tight in the focuser by giving it a little twist. To my surprise the upper body of the ethos just spun round and felt loose. I took the eyepiece out of the focuser and tightened it. With the ethos back in the focuser I was delighted to see that the comet like stars were gone and showed as round dots from the centre right to the edge. Avtar
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. I use a William Optics Multi Reticule Finder, it's nice and compact and you can vary the brightness.
