  1. Hi Roy, yes I did buy the tripod off you! It's served me well, but I'm scaling down to a refractor with a lightweight Altair mount/photographic tripod.
  2. Due to an upcoming wedding, I’ve decided to scale down my gear, so I’m having a clear out. Have withdrawn some items. Celestron 6” SCT - £230 collected Selling for a low price because the scope is in need of collimation and the front corrector plate, which hasn’t been touched, needs a clean. Comes with 6x30 finder which is missing caps. Dovetail has the usual signs of wear. Otherwise, OTA and optics are fine. Will throw in a dew shield too. Collection only from East London. Wooden tripod and Bag - £30 collected Old wooden tripod, probably from a Prinz refractor. Solid and extends to a very decent height (I’m 6’2 and this will extend beyond eye height). Comes with fishing rod bag which is perfect for carrying the tripod plus a mount. Has signs of wear and tear which are consummate with its age, but still solid and perfectly functional. Skywatcher ST80 - £45 collected In good condition. Some glue on the dew shield which I cannot remove. Revelation 3 Element 2.5x Barlow - £18 posted In good condition with clean optics.
  3. Do you think this will survive being posted? I'm interested

    Revelation 9mm Plossl eyepiece

    Hi, is this still available? If so, I will take it off your hands. Thank you.
  9. Is this a correct image finder?

    4mm eye piece

    A good idea might be to use a 10mm or 12mm eyepiece with a 2x barlow. That will give you more flexibility (like having two eyepieces) and greater eye relief.
  11. There's a handy page on the Televue site with information about field stops for individual eyepieces: http://www.televue.com/mobile/TV5_page.asp?id=214
