  1. Hi, It is but I need the pier and scope to go first. I really need the space. Acme
  2. Vixen LV-W series 8mm Eyepiece Boxed, excellent condition, only used a couple of times £115 o.n.o delivered. PayPal or Bank transfer. Acme
  3. Hi Dan, I have had offers for the mount.. I am holding out until I find an interested buyer who will take all three items as it's not likely that any single individual will travel for one item, postage is just not viable, I priced the items with the option of o.n.o. I think everyone knows the items are under priced in isolation but very reasonable as a job lot. I'll keep you in mind though as your the first to inquire about the mount and pier. Acme
  4. Not enough time due to work commitments and I need a more portable set-up. Obsevertory plans cancelled. UK Orion Optics Europa 250mm F4.8 Upgraded focuser to Revelation Dual speed with 2" extension tube, Good condition, collection Only £200 o.n.o Observatory Pier, Very heavy, well engineered unused, comes with EQ6 adapter. Collection only £150 o.n.o EQ6 Pro, Rowen Belt mod, stripped and regreaesed, Pro bolt mod, handset included. Quiet, smooth, good condition. £400 o.n.o Collection only. I will provide detailed photos and information for interested buyers via PM Acme
  5. Hi, 

    Is this still for sale?? I have seen it advertised on another site but you seem more keen on a swap. I am in negotiations with another user for a C9.25. Any room for negotiation on the  asking price??

      Hi Stephen,

      lim looking for about £1600 including the Hyperstar and a nice wheeled flight case.


  7. Hi, I had one, ETX 125 PE my very first scope, great optics. I sold it to a very experienced SGL member so I doubt many would think of it as a lemon. Have a look on here..... Weasner's Mighty ETX Site HTH Acme
  8. Duncan, The best thing to do is try and reduce the wobble, try hang some sort of weight of the center of the tripod. vertical like a plumb bob effect. Could you locate Polaris? it stays more or less in the same place so you can take your time and try focus on that first..If you can focus on anything in the distance in the daytime then I doubt it's a collimation issue it may be just the fact that by the time you try focus on a star it will have moved out of your field of view. Other members will pick this up and give you more advice. You are not alone!! Acme
  9. Duncan, Is it this one ..www.argos.co.uk/.../partNumber/5803745.htm
  10. Hi Duncan, What make or what model of scope have you got? Sure we can help...it does sound like a focus issue or your using a very high mag eyepiece when you should be using the lowest possible first to see the object...Stars don't hang about in the field of view for to long at high mag. Acme
  11. Slightly different design but I thought I would post up a picture to show the bolt on adapter in situ and how it looks mounted with my EQ6 Pro for all those thinking of building a DIY pier. Acme
