    11 x 70 Binoculars - Are they good?

    As above, the monopod is a way to go. Even with my old Zeiss 10x50s, once you get used to using a monopod with a ball head trigger grip, it's more comfortable. Oddly enough, although I'd used a photo tripod occasionally for binoculars in the past, I hadn't heard of monopods till I joined the forum here!

    Gaia reveals Albireo is a chance alignment only

    Got a really good look at Albireo for the first time seeing wise last week with my Flexitube 130P. Still looks beautiful, despite it 'only' being an optical double.

    What did the postman bring?

    What year is that edition? My old copy had a Shuttle at a spacestation, this one looks older than that.
  4. What size is that Right angle finder? As shown above, I simply drilled two holes without problems. Here in my own Heritage below... ...mounting a 6x30 right angle finder there doesn't cause any balance issues for me when the tube is extended for use. Mark

    TYPICAL!

    Congratulations to all who saw the eclipse. Typically, last night, despite rain in the evening, got a great view of the just past Full Moon rising over the houses to the South East after midnight!

    Now that's dedication. Right at the waters edge for a clear horizon!

    The Lunar Eclipse HAS BEGUN

    Stop rubbing it in! Not looking great weather wise here in the UK, as clouds rush in from the West with heavy rain forecast. Some of us might get lucky! In Central Scotland, it's currently cloudy, looking like rain by moonrise, continued thru rest of the night. I will keep checking between 10pm and 11pm, as I glimpsed the Moon thru clouds at about 1am last night, but not holding my breath.

    UPDATE: Televue 11mm Plossl SOLD
  12. Considering all the business uncertainty because of Brexit (I still hate that term) and all the associated fallout this is having on exchange rates the last couple of years, its good to see something like this.

    What did the postman bring?

    Was about to ask the same thing. The one on the focuser looks like it's a thermometer, but can't make out the one on the diagonal.
