  1. I also noticed someone on The CN forum managed to buy one off the shelf. I'm order number 10019 fully paid up 14 months and haven’t heard a peep from Astrotrac, very disappointed in their loyalty in that they are not prioritising those of us that funded the research and development of this mount. The good news is the mount is out there and we should get them soon.
  2. Just seen this thread, I managed to get a nice shot of it as well.
  3. Thanks I’ll check mine when it arrives on Monday
  4. Yes it’s still available, I bought it new about six months ago and never ever used it.
  5. This ZWO ASIAIR is brand new boxed never been used, £135 inc postage.
  6. Hi This colour camera is in absolutely mint condition only having been used twice, it comes boxed with all the leads and accessories. I'm looking for £625 including postage .
  7. Do you mean like this? I may be selling the bracket that holds the 183c camera soon as I’ve decided to go back to Atik cameras. Mel
  8. I used to have some very nice Leica ultravid 8x32's which I bought secondhand and used for about five years and sold them for almost what I paid for them. If you can afforded it good preowned optics will hold their value, I made the mistake of looking through some Swarovski 8.5 x 42 Swarovisions and then nothing else would do Mel
  9. I was using a tripod with a video head on it.
  10. I was using my Sony A7s with a canon 200mm F2.8 lens 1/15 @51,200 iso
  11. Yes, this is the third time I've managed to capture a Dragon spacecraft with RCS jets firing, we have to have a favourable ISS pass timed with the sun being not too low below the horizon so that the craft is not illuminated and most crucially of all a clear sky, I've missed a few due to bad weather. This is by far the best capture I've managed, several people have mentioned the thruster firings were easily visible in binoculars.
