  1. Celestron C8 XLT

    Celeston C8 XLT Good condition, comes with finder scope, telrad finder, dew shield, dew heater strap, standard 9 and 25mm eye pieces, diagonal and in it's original box. As you can see from one of the pictures, there is what looks like water marks from dried condensation, this is the largest one pictured. These have not increased in size since me buying it and was told that they where nothing to worry about when I had it collimated at the telescope house. You can only see these mark in certain light, I even had problems finding them to take a picture. 20141001_174159 by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr 20141001_175228 by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr IMG_0893_DxO by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr IMG_0897_DxO by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr IMG_0895_DxO by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr IMG_0901_DxO by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr Looking for £350 Collection only! purely because of the size of the box and because I would rather someone take a look at it before purchasing or have ago if you come during the evening as I have an AZ4 you can try it on.

  4. Lens Clear Out (Canon fit)

    After much thinking, I have withdrawn the 135mm f2 from sale as I'm thinking about getting back into astrophotography and this is the perfect lens to do it with. Plus I need 3 qualifying lesnes to stay a member of the CPS. If I don't have much luck, it will be going back up for sale along with a star adventurer. I will however be putting something else up for sale which will be of much more interest to a ot more people on here.

  7. £7 camera cooler

    Wow, £7 well spent. That is quite some difference.
  8. I have been pining for a Canon super telephoto lens for some time now and I'm going to be biting the bullet and purchasing it in January, so I'm having a bit of a clear out of lens I no longer use except for one which the Canon will be replacing. All my prices have been compared to Wex and MPB and I think my prices are very reasonable. These have not been advertised elsewhere yet as I wanted you lot to get first dibs. Canon 70-200mm f4 IS This lens has been pretty much unused since I got the 100-400mm mkii and so has been stored away. The quality of this lens is amazing at a constant f4 and this lens gave me the 'L' lens bug. Excellent, almost as new besides light marks on the lens hood. No marks on the barrel itself and clean and clear optics with no dust that I can see. Comes with hood, front and rear caps, box and leather pouch. £600 inc P+P to UK mainland only. Payment via bank transfer. Canon 70-200mm f4 IS by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr If you wish to come and view the lenses and try them out before you buy, then you are more than welcome to as I would also prefer this then I know you are going away happy and I will take £12 off the cost for no P+P. Location GU6 Sigma 150-600mm Sport This lens was purchased in June from Park Cameras and is still under warranty. I had plans to keep this lens for a very long time but I just can't resist the temptation of a Canon super telephoto for much longer. The overall condition of this lens is excellent only small number of light marks on the barrel and lens hood from use in bird hides rubbing on the wood work when at rest. With a lens of this size and weight it's going to happen. The optics are clean and clear with no dust that I can see. I have upgraded the tripod foot with one that has a Arca Swiss type mounting making it more secure on the tripod, as you know these aren't that cheap. I will also throw in the USB dock to allow you to customise your settings to suite your needs. Comes with hood, front and rear cap, carry case and box. Sigma 150-600mm Sport by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr Sigma 150-600mm Sport front element by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr Sigma 150-600mm Sport tripod foot by Anthony Hobbs, on Flickr £1000 this is collection only due to size and weight from GU6 location. I have been as truthful and as honest as I can as I know these are expensive purchases. Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via PM or if it's something that could help out a potential buyer, then please post it on here.
  9. Absolutely superb. I really struggle with timelapses. I never get the interval right.
