  1. John, I tried but unfortunately it does not fit
  2. Hi Stargazers, I'm tying to mount my AZ4 head to a Manfrotto 475B photo tripod. Does anyone know if I can buy an AZ4 > Photo Tripod converter from anywhere? Thanks
  3. Hi Stargazers, Does anyone what to part with their Vamo Traveler or SV MC2 alt Az mount? I'm looking for a solid, but light weight mount that will accept encoders and these seem the best option for my needs. Thanks,
  4. Dave this was the procedure I undertook to fix my focus issue. 1. Close right eye and then look though left eyepiece using the left eye and find sharp focus 2. Remove the eyecup from the binocular by unscrewing it (see fig 1. & fig 2.) 3. Using a 0.9 Allen key, locate and unscrew the three small hex screws (see fig 3.) 4. Remove the diopter completely from the binocular (see fig 4.) 5. Close left eye and look through right hand eyepiece using the right eye 6. Adjust the right eyepiece by twisting until the right eyepiece is in sharp focus. You may need a pair
  5. Hi Stargazers, I am wanting to fit a GLP to my 20x80 binos. Does anyone use one on binos with a central mounting bar? Where can I purchase a suitable GLP and what type of mounting do I require please? Thanks in advance Chris https://www.opticron.co.uk/our-products/binoculars/observation-binoculars/wp-observation-20x80
  6. 100% correct Bill. I am bowled over by their assistance today. Couldn't be happier.
  7. Thanks for sharing your observations. I too look forward to reading more about your Dob v's Helios
  8. Michael, They are indeed a wonderful binocular. I had a peek at the double cluster when I first got them a couple of weeks ago. Despite being a little 'wonky' the cluster was easily the best I've ever seen it. The 3.5 degree FOV framed it beautifully.
  9. My focusing issue has been resolved thanks to a very helpful lady from Opticron. The binoculars now find sweet focus. Looks like I might get chance to try them out tonight under semi clear skies (here's hoping). Thanks Pete and team at Opticron for outstanding customer service. Especially considering I am a second hand owner of these binos. I really do appreciate this. Chris
  10. Hi Deeko, Is your HoTech collimator still available? Thanks
  11. Hi Pete, I tried adjusting the diopter screws but unfortunately that did not resolve my issue. It seems the right eyepiece fairly easily 'slides' in and out of the eye tube. It can simply be 'pulled' out completely. What I have noticed is the eyepiece will screw down into place. However when securely and fully screwed down the eyepiece will not come to focus using the diopter. But when I unscrew the eyepiece and pull it out of the eyepiece tube (by about 1/4 cm) then I am able to get the eyepiece into a decent and sharp focus. I'll phone the service department later today to discuss
  12. Thanks Peter. I'll take a look at FLO and the other retailers.
  13. Hi Stargazers, Would anyone with experience please advise me on the second hand value of my Tele Vue 102 (f8.6) 4" refractor? The OTA plus optics are in mint condition. It also comes with options for either dovetail or Losmandy mountings, the Tele Vue Starbeam red dot finder, the Tele Vue Everbrite 2" diagonal and a Tele Vue hard carry case. Of course I have the price I paid for it in October 2014 to guide me. Before I purchased it, it had one previous careful owner. Thanks
  14. Next question please. Where can I source a bright, reliable green laser pointer?
