  7. Would have helped if he emailed you some original images of the Scope and accessories. The image in the ad isnt his TV85
  8. I think its thrustworthy yes, because he mentions the old (not defect) focuser he recommends beeing replaced With a newer one. But it doesnt help you what I think, does it ? I think you have to register to blocket.se to get his phonenumber, you could talk to him, and maybe get someone to drive you over to sweden to check out the Scope and seller yourself? Rune
  9. Hey Victor. Theres a secondhand Televue 85 for sale in Gothenburg, that might be of interest? Might want to replace the focuser to a newer one. price in the area of DKR 7000,- Gothenburg isnt that far away from ya. Blocket.se Televue 85 Rune
  10. From that location in July, you wont be able to (naked eye) see more than the summer triangle and Arcturus I`m afraid. And none of the big dipper stars.
  11. Heres a Nice list of double stars: Top 200 most beautiful double stars Open clusters: - Melotte 111, Coma star cluster, is a Nice Collection of stars spread over 7 degrees, best in binoculars, but I do find this area quite beautiful in my 130 Heritage also. - IC 4665 the summer beehive is also very Nice open cluster, well Worth a look Rune
  12. Another member of SGL (sorry, I cant rembember who) provided us With this link : lens caps
  13. Unless these images arent from the Stellina at all ...
  14. On their "captured by Stellina" image gallery esp. Orion Nebula, theres clearly diffraction spikes on the stars?
