  1. Thanks, Kevin Please send me a PM to let me know how you would like to pay. Thanks Derek
  2. This item is brand new and unused. It came with a Baader T2 Prism I bought earlier this week but I upgraded to the ClickLock eyepiece holder so this part isn't required. The full specification can be found here: Baader 1.25" Helical Focusing Eyepiece Holder T2 The cost from a retailer is £31 + delivery, so around £35. I am looking for £24 including UK delivery. PayPal friends or bank transfer.
  3. This item is still available. I have reduced the cost to £75 including delivery in he UK.
  4. Thanks for the kind offer, Jules, but I have a Meade Prism on the way that I bought from another member yesterday.
  5. I modified a cheap mirror diagonal to reduce the light path by about 10mm. It's not ideal but it does the job for now and I have a Meade Prism on the way that I bought from an SGL member yesterday.
  6. The butchered mirror diagonal and 32mm TV Plossl reach focus on the night sky but there are a few issues that are probably down to the very poor quality and nature of the diagonal so I will leave any judgement until I get a better piece of kit in its place.
  7. Here is my latest travel kit...
  8. I think we should stop before it gets out of hand
  9. If the Meade diagonal that I have bought works I will spend money on a Baader equivalent because I’m a sucker for style over substance. If you are more sensible than me and you want a cheap prism for yours wait a week and I’ll sell you the Meade for what I paid
  10. My experiments with this scope continue in this thread...
  11. I have now managed to focus on the Moon with the butchered diagonal and a TV 32mm Plossl. I still have a few mm of Travel to play with so hopefully infinity won’t be a problem.
  12. I reckon if you utilise the dew shield you could easily get six CNC rings on there just to feel safe
  13. I’m off for a few days on a narrow boat this week so I have put this little travel case together to combine with a TV Telepod tripod and GR-2 Mini Giro The Stella has been poured simply to give a sense of perspective in terms of the size of the flight case
