  1. Lens Clear Out (Canon fit)

    Still got the Sigma.
  2. Celestron C8 XLT

  3. Lens For DSLR wide-field

    I know quite a few people use the older (vintage) lenses due to them being very cheap to buy and just buy an adapter to fit it to your Canon. I'm a fan of the old manual Olympus Zuiko lens just because the quality is very good and there is plenty of them around. I have a 50mm 1.8 and a 35mm 2.8, trying to get a 28mm 2.8 but they go for silly money for how little I'm going to use it. I would post an image I have taken with them but I don't have any at them moment as I'm too lazy to go out an do some imaging, I'm just a lens hoarder.
  4. Not that I will ever get the chance to see it, I always wondered what it would look through a scope. Thanks for posting.

  6. Celestron C8 XLT

  7. 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.

  10. 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    After much thinking, I have withdrawn the 135mm f2 from sale as I'm thinking about getting back into astrophotography and this is the perfect lens to do it with.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.
  11. Lens Clear Out (Canon fit)

    Just been looking around, price drop on the Sigma to £1000.
  12. Lens Clear Out (Canon fit)

    Thank you.
  13. £7 camera cooler

    Wow, £7 well spent. That is quite some difference.
  14. 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.
