  1. ...but if you were hovering over the "Buy" button on a new Tele Vue or Lunt product you might want to hit it now! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-43270388
  2. Very nice! The FT focuser is a great upgrade for this scope and very easy to fit. Best of luck with those clouds
  3. There are currently eight classic episodes of S@N available on BBC iPlayer on Sky Q. They might be available on other services. I have just watched the episode that tracked Voyager 2's flyby of Uranus. Absolutely fascinating to watch.
  4. Baffled by my Delos 10mm

    So is mine. It sounds to me that eye positioning was the issue and your eye was positioned outside the focal point. Try retracting the body down so that the eye lens is at the top of the eye guard. You can then try to find the ideal position for your eye/glasses and place the eye guard at the correct height.
  5. TeleVue Delos 8mm, 12mm & 14mm

    Eh? What? Are you trying to compromise my entire belief system? Where do I find these £50 bargains? And should I buy dozens of them in order to feel like I have spent enough money solving a problem? In my defence, I have not mentioned the 3.5mm so I cannot be accused of Wholesetitis
  6. TeleVue Delos 8mm, 12mm & 14mm

    Already got those, and the 4.5mm and 10mm
  7. I am looking for all of these. They must be in pristine condition with caps and box. Please get in touch if you have one to sell.
  8. Shout "GO AWAY MOON!" and then wait two weeks. It works every time
  9. Who 'discovered' averted vision?

    Sounds more likely. I don't think enough time has passed for the ability to have evolved amongst astronomers, which could only happen if we were an isolated breeding species
  10. Who 'discovered' averted vision?

    Or perhaps Cavewomen
  11. These have now gone to @ChrisEll Please close the ad.
  12. I have the seven most-recent editions of S@N Magazine that are available free to a good home. If you are happy to send £5 by PayPal friends to cover the postage within the UK you are welcome to them.
  13. I think the biggest problem is that all of the upgrade clamps I've seen take M6 or M8 bolts. The screw heads on the M4 bolts on this mount would just fall through the holes in the clamp or would require washers, which just doesn't feel like an improvement to me.
  14. A quote from the above link... This should be extremely interesting!
