  1. Revelation 9mm Plossl eyepiece

    Yes it is. PM me with details. best Paul
  2. Altair Astro TMS 120mm guide scope rings

    Hi Just measured them and there are two pairs of threaded holes - 25mm and 40mm apart. I am guessing they are 1/4" because they appear to be not far off 6mm diameter. Paul
  3. Sirius-branded 500mm focal length reflex mirror lens with T-mount fitting. Manual focus. Japanese-made, although I have seen the identical lens with a variety of brand names. End caps. It's like a mini-SCT!! Nice and compact. Good condition but no box that I can locate - will ensure boxed and wrapped carefully. A few dust specks on the mirror, although as it appears to be sealed I have no idea how they have got there. £28 (Paypal friends or bank transfer) UK mainland delivered.
  4. SOLD Skywatcher-style finder shoe bracket

    Sold to Ian- thanks
  5. Revelation 9mm Plossl eyepiece

    Boxed and unused. £12 (Paypal friends or bank transfer) including UK delivery.
  6. Includes 2 tightening screws (some only appear to have 1 - not sure why). A minor scratch inside the mounting hole. £5 (Paypal friends or bank transfer) including UK delivery.
  7. Altair Astro TMS 120mm guide scope rings

    Honestly I don't know. They are quoted as 120mm, but the external diameter of the rings. The internal diameter is 105mm. They were originally used for a Altair Astro 70ED. I have just measured and there's about 19mm of clearance on the main body of the 70ED scope. Hope that helps. Paul
  8. A non-focal reducing Field Flattener which gives improved results for photography with triplet and doublet refractor telescopes of between F5.5 and approximately F6.25 focal ratio. As seen here. Unused condition. However I have noticed what may be a small scratch on the lens. I believe it's nature is such that will not impact performance at all, however I am disclosing for transparency and have attempted to show a picture of it below. If the buyer determines that the scratch is impacting the performance, I will accept a return and fully refund together with the costs of return. £47 (Paypal friends or bank transfer) including UK delivery.
  9. A few minor scratches but otherwise excellent condition. These are the black tube rings - as seen here on AA website. £50 (Paypal friends or bank transfer) including UK delivery.
  10. Clear silver. Excellent condition - only a few minor scratches from limited use. £30 (Paypal friends or bank transfer) including UK delivery.
  11. TeleVue Nagler Type 1 - 7mm

    Original design type 1 Nagler 7mm. This is a very well-used eyepiece that I acquired via SGL about a year ago. The barrel and housing are quite scratched, as the pictures show, but the optics are in very good condition. This was my introduction to wide AFOV observing, and the only reason for selling it is I now have a set of 3 new Naglers with the fold-up cups (which suit me better) - this design has no fold-up cups. If you've not yet experienced the joy of wide AFOV ina good quality eyepiece, this is an excellent introduction - it was for me. Boxed and with (non-original) end caps. Priced to reflect the external condition. £75 (via Paypal friends or bank transfer) including UK delivery.
  12. Excellent condition (only the usual minor dust specks and light barrel scratches), boxed with end caps (lower cap not original). A super example of a Plossl eyepiece. £80 (Paypal friends or bank transfer), which includes UK delivery.
  13. A straightforward alt-azimuth mount with adjustable aluminium tripod and large accessory tray. It features two flexible slow-motion cables, one for vertical and one for horizontal control. Accurately tracks distant moving objects with ease. This mount is ideal for terrestrial observations but can also be used for a no-fuss grab-and-go astronomy setup. Includes attached camera adapter plate. I bought this used and had my PST mounted on it for a while; however I recently bought an AZ5 for my other frac, so this is now surplus to requirements. Condition is fair for age (guessing at least 5 years old), so a few scratches etc that don't impact function. Probably not as smooth as it once was but that could probably be sorted with a strip-down and lubrication; it's been fine for using with my PST. £40 (via Paypal friends or bank transfer). Collection from Cambridgeshire.
  14. Immaculate condition, boxed and as good as new, bought only a few months ago. Extract from the FLO website: These quirky new binoculars from Vixen have been developed for widefield observation of, for example, the Milky Way. They use a Galilean optic with 2.1x magnification which promises a more "walk in" view than 6x or 8x binoculars. Supplied in a soft carry case, these binoculars have been jointly developed with Miyauchi and are made in Saitama, Japan. 3rd party review here: In the interests of transparency, I should point out that I did not get on at all with these binoculars due to my shortsightedness. See my review here. If you are significantly shortsighted, please do your research before buying; they can be modified but that's just beyond what I want to be doing! £215 (via Paypal friends or bank transfer), including UK delivery.
  15. Italy - night one

    Nice report, Piero! Enjoy the extra few degrees of Southern Hemisphere sky! +1 for granularity in the background in a small scope (mine is 70mm) with an N31 along the Milky Way. P
