  4. We have split our Celestron Evolution 8 bundles so you can buy the C8 SCT OTA for only £849 (£100 less than the regular C8 SCT OTA) Genuine unopened UK stock will full Celestron two-year warranty. The Evolution 8" SCT is optically identical to the regular black model (Starbright XLT coatings and Faster compatible). Mechanically it is near identical too (a different colour) and includes the same eyepieces and star-diagonal as the regular model. It is also supplied with a Red-Dot-Finder, which is more useful than the regular 6x30 finder. The CG5/Vixen-type dovetail can be moved from the side (for use with alt-az mounts) and fitted to the bottom (for equatorial mounts). Celestron Evolution C8 SCT OTA
  5. We can also now confirm 10% discount off all Explore Scientific products ordered at the SGL Star Party So: 10% discount off all Explore Scientific products 10% off ZWO cameras and accessories. 10% off Baader Planetarium products. A number of reduced price Celestron products. A number of discounted demo/customer-return items.
  6. If anyone wants us to bring an item to the SGL Star party please let us know. We will check the thread then pack requested items before heading to Lucksall
  7. Would that be the AP-R1S (S1) cable you are wanting?
  8. No problem, we'll have one for you Regarding your Artesky Flat Field Generator, we don't have one here but we think it might use the same 2-pin DC Jack as Sky-Watcher's EQ8 mount. I will try to confirm before we leave for Lucksall.
  9. I wasn't aware we were looking for an answer to that question. Also, we stopped stocking Artesky products several months ago and, as far as I can tell, we haven't sold an Artesky Flat Field generator to someone named Anne. Are you sure it was us you contacted? No problem Just to be sure, is it this cable you are wanting? Steve
  10. ... and don't forget the Bring & Buy Sale is also on Saturday 10.30am-1pm. If you are attending and have pre-owned astro kit for sale then you are welcome to setup a table near us or at your pitch, car-boot style. The more the merrier
  11. I have been speaking with Grant, he says this year's ticket sales for the SGL Star party are near identical to last year's As promised FLO will have a trade stall on Saturday (10am - 1pm in the Welcome Tent). It will be a relaxed affair (no hard sell!) but with plenty of deals on the day. I.e. 10% off all ZWO cameras and accessories and 10% off all our Baader products. We'll also have a number of reduced price Celestron products and some discounted demo/customer-return items. As always please say if there is something specific you would like us to bring to the SGL Star Party. We are looking forward to seeing you there
  12. I think the original red colour scheme was a Chinese thing, in China the colour red is a symbol of prosperity, good fortune, joy and happiness. Here's a photo we just made of the Skywatcher Star Adventurer bundle.
  13. The Skywatcher Star Adventurer is sporting Skywatcher's new white livery with green-anodised components (When FLO was born Skywatcher mounts were black and thier OTAs blue. Seems such a long time ago!)
  14. Not as far as we know, it is currently available (or will be!) only with tripod. It certainly has proved popular. Steve
  15. The new Skywatcher AZ-GTi mount has proven more popular than expected, we have completely sold out and the next delivery isn't due until late-November The AZ GTi mount/telescope bundles have also sold out, though more should arrive late-October. Please note this situation affects all UK retailers so if you see it displayed as 'in stock' at a competitor we recommend you contact them before placing your order, just to be sure...
