  6. hi selling my vixen porta 2 mount its in perfect working order but has a few knocks and one of the slow motion pins is slightly bent but does not affect the operation of the mount comes with the allen keys and rubber cover and also the eyepiece tray any questions please ask regards john. ps looking for £160
  7. Hi thinking of selling my celestron evolution mount in excellent condition comes with tripod only selling because I am a technphobe and old fashioned can't do with I pads, I phone's etc.. much prefer the star hopping method .Anyway I am looking for £450 mark these are retailing for £799 .so it's a good saving on a new price it will be collection only or meet up any questions just ask.. ** no longer available **
  8. Hi Steve I'll take the barlow if it's still available john.
  9. Hi fozzie/Andy I have a 150p newtonian and had the same problem with the 2" to 1.25 adapter so I got this.. now not a problem.
  10. I have the vixen porta ii mount and like gavster says it will handle a 4" f5/7 frac but not much else I use my set up the same as gavster with the televue 76 . The mini porta IMHO won't take a 130 newt , a better solution would be a az4 aluminum legged that would easily take a 130 I have a 150 newtonian on mine and it's solid . A 130 on a porta ii , not sure about that either . John.
  11. thanks neil .. now for a bit of shopping.
  12. hi neil, i have one and its a cracking tripod light but strong , i also need a adapter for it so i can use my gp mount and my az4 mount , i have seen the adapter somewhere but cannot find it on the web regards john.
  13. the chains are a pain .. they wrap around the legs try pulling them apart when you have a heavy mount on top , you end up laying on the floor with your tripod on top of you ..
  14. Not at them prices..
