  1. The RACI sale to @wulfrun above didn't quite cover my pre-emptive ordering of this, but it arrived today anyway.
  2. Is that the More Blue Carbon Fibre Half Pillar? It looks great with that grey Report - I think I need one
  3. The rings look great - so whenever you want to sell the clamshell...
  4. I've just had this printed (A3) and it's pretty great for ~£20 (I used https://www.doxdirect.com A3, 130gsm satin paper).
  5. Yes - it comes with the bracket, but not with the finder shoe / base.
  6. This is the TSSU850WW from TS-Optics, bought for a project which never materialised, and so is now surplus to my requirements. In great condition. Nice clear image and with crosshairs. Price: £60 inc. UK mainland postage. Payment: bank transfer or PayPal (buyer pays fees)
  7. Picadilly Circus 2015 - ahhh, I barely remember it.
  8. What a great write-up for your new scope. I’ve found that this little Tak (and the even tinier FS-60) feel as though they punch far above their weight.
  9. Yeah I think so. The Astronomical League list this - https://www.astroleague.org/al/obsclubs/messier/messlist.html
  10. It's exactly what it looks like - I'm looking for a Tak 6x30 finder and bracket.
  11. Where did you get those really long Slo-mo cables from?
  12. I've attached some pictures of what I am trying to achieve. I think the better Velcro will be my first option, but any clever pocket type or other arrangements gratefully considered.
  13. No, it's blue all over. And the mounting geometry restricts my options too.
  14. I don't have lots of options to try here. However, on closer inspection, I did already try glueing on top of the glue that came with the velcro, and now I'm wondering if this is the weakest point. There was glue residue left on the Pegasus, so it wasn't completely failing there. If this is, as I'm now suspecting, cheap stuff, maybe I just need proper supplies.
  15. Yeah I did clean with alcohol first, but I just can't bring myself to get the emery paper, not on such lovely blue aluminium. But I totally understand that it wold most likely be much more successful.
