  1. Well, I don't have Amazon so sadly I can't watch it anytime soon:-(. It would be good if it could be on BBC, or Sky, or YouTube...could anyone er, "Make it So"? Dave
  2. All books now sold apart from The Observers' Sky Atlas, which is in mint condition and still available for just £9 posted in the UK. Thanks, Dave
  3. NOTE: Only the Observers' Sky Atlas now available, thanks..- it's in mint condition. SOLD - Norton's Star Atlas, Softback, 19th Edition Epoch 2000. SOLD - Norton's Star Atlas, Hardback, 18th Edition Epoch 2000. - The Observers' Sky Atlas, E Karkoschka, Hardback, £9 posted. Packed with info, notes and numerous charts ideal for field use, being quite compact. SOLD - The Observers' Book of Astronomy, Patrick Moore. Thanks for looking, Dave
  4. Looks like you are saving the est (17.5mm) til last! - an amazing eyepiece. I'd be interested to hear what you think after a comparison of the Pentax XW5 and the Morpheus 4.5mm? Dave
  5. Or this one? https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sunmns-Comfortable-Neoprene-Binoculars-Strap/dp/B07GWN98JD/ref=asc_df_B07GWN98JD/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309904628344&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=7874414855090856118&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=m&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9044874&hvtargid=pla-652638144627&psc=1 Dave
  6. You beat me to it Steve! A truly wonderful scope. Dave
  7. - Looks great - Tighter Stars/sharper images- important for example on tight doubles' separation - no diffraction spikes - Better contrast - Easier to mount on a tracking mount (less important on an AZ mount) - permanently collimated, very unlikely to ever need adjustment - easier to look through (I know that is subjective, but I honestly believe that) - Looks great (did I say that before?) Dave
  8. I love the scope Nicos, just not enough dry clear weather to use it regularly for the past 6 months.. But I'm retired now so hopefully can grab the chance much more this year. Good luck with your sale! Dave
  9. A thing of total beauty Steve... ..and the stepper motor looks ok too! Dave
  10. Fabulous scope (I have one) and I can happily confirm that Nicos is a top guy: he helped me with advice (and a couple of components, unsolicited and free of charge, posted to me from Cyprus!) when I was trying to figure out a short light path to allow native binoviewing without a Barlow or OCS. Buy with confidence! Dave
  11. +1 for that, a real "log burner/fireside" read..(even though I was actually on the loo at the time!). Seriously, thanks for the time and detail in that report . Dave
