  1. Hi SGL team, Is anyone in, or near, Edinburgh/Scotland selling an EQ5 mount? Andy
  2. SOLD! Admins - feel free to remove........Mint condition Williams Optics binoviwers with WO 20mm ep's and a pair of 25mm ep's. Comes as bought with WO barlow. Retails new for £284 so grab yourself a bargain and have them for £190 plus packaging. Get in touch if you fancy taking advantage of the rest of the season. Andy
  3. Hi Dobbie. Am I right in thinking it's the EQ5 head and you have attached gears to it? If so I might be interested! I'll pm you Andy
  4. Seating is in BlockP, Row 34, seats 247/248 in case you want to see where they are you can have a squizz at the 3Arena page online
  5. Hi folks - my wonderful other half bought surprise tickets for my 40th to see Dr Brian Cox at 3Arena, Dublin on Weds May 24th. Due to work commitments I can't make it and I'm looking to recoup only what was paid for this now sold out show. £90 for the 2 tickets - drop me a line here or ring me on 07725641875 if you fancy it and I'll get them sent out to you asap. Feel free to spread the word if you have people in Ireland or know anyone who might like to make the trip. Cheers Andy
  6. Hey - I'm looking for a group or decent site near Aberdeen as I'm up working for the next few weeks. Did you have any luck finding somewhere? I use Harperrigg with csog when staying at home as well Andy
  7. Totally agree with lots of folk here. I was becoming frustrated with my 150p in my light polluted back garden in Edinburgh. I eas actually thinking of sacking it off until I went to dark skies with an astronomy group. It totally changed my perception of the hobby. I quickly bought an 8" and then a 12" dob so I have to travel for dark skies. It makes it all the more worth it. Hope you find a solution to your problem mate
  8. Hello Spaceboy - sent a wee pm regarding the ES 9mm over Regards Andy
  9. Hey Dazza - I've got the same scope. great, crisp views. Can I ask where you got the tube rings and what dimension they are? Regards Andy
  10. Hey Michael - would those rings be too small for an Equinox 80ed? Andy
  11. Fantastic thread folks. I've recently purchased a cheap wee 2nd hand pair of WO bv's. I attended Abernethy star party in October but could not achieve focus in either my 12" dob or SW Equinox 80ed. Due to work/weather constraints I have not been able to justify giving over limited observing time to troubleshooting the problem. Happy to say after reading through this thread I feel inspired to get it sorted. I wouldn't dream of chopping the tube and I am hoping to find quick, low cost fixes to the frac issue. As mentioned earlier I would be viewing solar system as an add on to cyclops rather than using BV's all the time. I liked the idea given previously of using them straight through the frac to at least get an idea if I like it or not. I shall report back with my results as soon as the next clear night comes along Regards Andy
