  1. Love a time lapse. You had a nice clear sky last night. Pity it doesn't get dark until very late and even then, no sooner as it's dark it's getting light again!
  2. I need to clear a space in my visual filter case, so I have for sale a couple of my less used filters. 1.25" GSO Light Yellow #8 filter £10 to include standard second class postage within UK 2" unbranded Moon filter - to be honest I do not know anything about this filter as it is one I have picked up along the way. Good quality filter. Looks slightly darker than my Orion 13% transmission filter. £15 to include standard second class postage within UK Will do both filters for £20 Both filters are in good condition with cases Bank transfer preferred, however I can also arrange PayPal Thanks for looking Vicky
  3. Yes please! PM incoming! I've been looking for one of these to turn up for ages
  4. M51 The Whirlpool Galaxy in Canes Venatici imaged 17.03.2019 Skywatcher Equinox 80 ED & Altair Hypercam 183C 28 x 120 second exposures
  5. ***SOLD*** I have for sale my T2 adapter ring for Nikon DSLR cameras. Boxed Good quality metal construction £10 including standard 2nd class delivery within UK Payment by bank transfer preferred, but I can do PayPal Thanks for looking Vicky
  6. I thought the same, but thought I'd just make you aware of it. Good luck with your search
  7. ***SOLD*** I have for sale my Starguider adapter for Canon EOS lenses to T2 thread for CCD cameras. Nice quality solid adapter made from black anodised aluminium, and is a similar design to the Geoptik branded version. Has 1/4" photo/camera thread and 3 X M5 threads under the base. The optical length of the adapter is 19mm, leaving enough back focus for most CCDs. Please check your particular model as I needed an additional T2 spacer to achieve focus. Allows standard 1.25" filter to be used within the adapter, keeping them dust free when both lens and camera are in place. Please note, that this adapter does not allow the use of 2" filters, only 1.25" filters. The bracket uses a locking ring mechanism: prior to inserting the lens, the locking ring needs to be turned clockwise until it stops. The lens should then be inserted in the bracket and turned clockwise in the bayonet. The locking ring is then turned anti-clockwise to lock the lens in position. Compatable with Canon EOS bayonet mount lenses: all Canon EOS lenses and includes EF-S lenses. Also, your lens does not need to be Canon as long as the bayonet type is correct, so other brands such as Tamron or Sigma are compatible. £50.00 including standard delivery within the UK. I also have for sale my Geoptik Finderscope Adapter for these type of CCD adaptors. Attaches to the Starguider adapter to allow the use of a finderscope or guidescope for longer exposure imaging. High quality and anodised in Geoptiks trademark Orange. Note: There is a slight scratch to the paintwork to the underside of the adapter from when I had my guidescope shoe bolted onto the top, and I caught it whilst tightening the nut/bolt with my pliers. I am listing separately at £20, however, if bought with the Starguider adapter I will do both items for £65.00 including standard delivery within the UK. Bank transfer preferred, but can do PayPal. Thanks for looking Vicky
  8. Price reduced to £12.50 including standard postage within UK
  9. There is an IDAS LPS-P2 77mm Light Surpression Filter on ABS UK. However, not knowing much about these things, I'm not sure if it is suitable for your needs https://www.astrobuysell.com/uk/propview.php?view=146480
  10. ***SOLD*** I have for sale my BNIB Pixco Canon EF to C-mount adapter. Nice quality solid adapter. Unused as I changed my direction after purchase and went down the route of using my Hypercam 183C with my DSLR lenses rather than my QHY5L-II. Price reduced to £12.50 including standard delivery within UK. Bank transfer preferred, but can do PayPal. Thanks for looking Vicky
