    Starbook Ten

    Hello I am very satisfied with my recently purchased Vixen SX2 mount, it came with the basic Starbook One controller, works fine for tracking. I'd now like to add GoTo and so would like to purchase a Starbook Ten controller or perhaps if you would like to swap your Starbook Ten for my Starbook One plus cash. I'm in Europe and will pay the additional shipping costs. Thanks and Best Regards Carl
  2. Hello Brian I’m interested in the Baader MPCC MK III, if it’s still available, would you consider posting it to Europe? I’d pay the additional postage ( to Serbia ) and can pay by PayPal or bank transfer. Best Regards Carl
  3. Wanted - Circle T Erfle 16mm & 25mm Hello I’m looking for bino pairs of Circle T Erfles, a pair of 16mm and a pair of 25mm eyepieces. I’m not fussy about the cosmetic condition but would want them to be in good optical condition with clean unmarked glass. I have a pair of 20mm Circle T (Celestron) Erfles as well as a pair of 28mm Taks and find the Erfles are comfortable for my solar binoviewing where I ignore the outer field. If you have a pair you are willing to part with I’ll give them a good home and you a good price. Shipping to Europe (Serbia ) by ordinary post, I can pay either via PayPal or bank to bank transfer. Best Regards Carl

  6. Hello is this still for sale ? If so, I’m interested. Best Regards Carl
  7. Thanks Barry Just what I wanted to hear, It's good to know they perform well when the temperature drops as I will be using the mount all year round and winter nights here can be quite chilly. Best Regards Carl
  8. Hello I’m about to take delivery of a Vixen SX2 with Starbook One, this will be my first ever powered / motorized mount. I do not have a power tank and whilst that is an option I wondered if anyone used a Tracer 3.5AH LiFePo4 battery ? Best Regards Carl Sent from my iPad
  9. Hello Mark I’m interested in the Vixen GP Mount Head , if still available would you consider shipping to Europe? Best Regards Carl
  10. They don't seem to advertise it but Orion Optics do make a Carbon Fibre Dew Shield that threads onto the objective cell of the OMC140. I have one, it's a perfect match for the OMC140 tube. Best Regards Carl
  11. Hello I've fitted my OMC140 with a JMI Motor Focus unit I had spare from my TV101 refractor. It works, no vibration when focusing. There will be a more elegant implementation some day but for now I've something that does the job so I thought I'd pass it on. Lucky for me the mounting holes for the OMC finder bracket are the same distance apart as the mounting slots on the JMI bracket that fits the TV101 focus pinion. Best Regards Carl
  12. Pentax Binoculars Sold Eyepieces withdrawn. est Regards Carl
  13. Hello Steviemac If this filter is still available, I'm interested. Please let me know. Best Regards Carl
