  1. Hi, I have a pair of 100mm ED 45 degree Lunt Engineering / APM binoculars that I may consider selling. They are in mint condition with the original eyepieces and foam packaging. PM me if you're interested. Regards, Mark
  2. 2nd hand Starwave 152mm and Altair Sabre Alt Az mount. Very pleasing views of the moon tonight with minor CA, I'm awaiting delivery of a Baader semi apo filter to see what effect that will have. The plan is to paint the home made c/w a similar shade of red or possibly silver.
  3. Yes its a great club and I'd recommend it, we haven't met for quite a while for obvious reasons however we have a monthly zoom call with presentations, sharing photos and news updates etc, its held on the last Friday of the month. Have a look at the facebook page for more info. https://www.facebook.com/groups/243183369351766
  4. Welcome - I'd recommend that you join a local astro group, there are loads to choose from in Cheshire, I attend one at Delamere.
  5. I've just sold my 110mm W.O triplet so I'll keep the 80mm for a bit longer so unfortunately it's no longer for sale.
  6. Hi Geordie, The newer version retails (GT81) for about £1200 and I'm looking for £675 + postage. See the article below for more info. Regards, Mark https://www.cloudynights.com/articles/cat/user-reviews/telescopes/80mm-90mm-refractors/megrez-80-ii-ed-triplet-apo-r1197
  7. My last purchase from them was 9th March so I'll be off their Christmas card list this year. my FLO shopping trolley has a few items in it though so might be able to redeem the situation.
  8. I don't specifically buy kit to make me happier however if the kit helps me achieve my astronomy objectives then this will make me happier. I own loads of kit that I chop and change on a regular basis, researching, buying and then setting up / using an assortment of astro equipment is more rewarding for me than using the same equipment for several years - each to their own.
  9. Hi Dan, Apologies for the slow response, the scope I have is a Megrez 80 Mk 11 ED Triplet SMC 560mm focal length. I hadn't really thought about selling it until I saw the original wanted advert. Regards, Mark
  10. What's your budget as I've a William Optics 80mm triplet that I might sell.
  11. I agree with your suggestion, I was trying to find a way of utilising it differently without ending up with any major compromises but I don't think that's possible.
  12. How about fitting the 2" filter on to a piece of card that goes over the objective lens?
  13. Hi, I have a 2" IDAS D2 light pollution filter that I would like to use with my astro modified Canon 600 camera and my L series 200mm lens which has a 72mm filter thread on the front. Is there an easy way to connect them all together? Thanks, M
  14. Hi, not sure if Meade are premium enough for you but these filters seem very good to me. Let me know what you think. At the price I'm asking you could try them out and if they aren't suitable you can resell. https://www.astrobuysell.com/uk/agentadmin.php?edit=160304 Regards, Mark
