  1. Mod Team. Please archive as and when... Thank you
  2. Astronomy with binoculars

    Steve It arrived via ParcelForce. Although I wondered whether there could be something to pay, I was pleasantly pleased when it was delivered without any request for tax or duty...
  3. Lunar 100 resources

    After being alerted to Mr Woods’ book by @Knighty2112 I received my copy this afternoon. Swift delivery from our Amazonian chums... To date we’ve been using VMA and the Cambridge Photographic Atlas via a long, laborious exercise of printed screenshots from an E-Book that I turned into a PDF and printed out... This Atlas is superb. It will act as a brilliant “at eyepiece” resource instead of what we’ve been trying to use via a few inferior apps and print outs. Thanks Gus 👍🏻 Money well spent...
  4. Gus, free to a good home... I’ll get the Butler to deliver them directly... The Bentley’s a tad thirsty. Shall we say £130 covers it 😂
  5. I'd just check that... From your photo, I can see what looks like 3 Hex Head Bolts around the Central Cross Head Screw. That's just like my 130P secondary arrangement. And my secondary does need collimation from time to time by using an Allen Key on those 3 Hex Heads... Enjoy your new scope as soon as the skies clear...
  6. Last chance before we "skip them" !!
  7. Astronomy with binoculars

    I believe you are referring to a Parallelogram or P Mount. I have just had one of the P Mounts shipped over from Valentin who makes them in Ukraine. It arrived within 10 days. It works wonderfully whether i’m standing or in the recliner and it works superbly with both of my Lightquests... Others have bought from Valentin. But equally other P Mounts are available, or you could make your own... http://astrodevices.net/mounts/parallelogram-standard-iii-pro
  8. Educational binocular book.

    Thanks for the suggestion and endorsements guys. Just ordered as a consequence of the positive comments 👍🏻
  9. Orion Optics VX8L 1/10th wave Dobsonian

    I'm sure we could organise a SGL relay south to the coast...

    Paging @iPeace... Paging Mike...
  11. Any tips for Astro Sketching

    One of the best resources I found was http://www.astronomydrawings.com/ His guide is well worth the small cost to be able to download 👍🏻
  12. Something for the weekend Sir ?? Bumpety Bump...
  13. Deposit received. Considered as sold prior to Easter collection by @cv01jw Advert can be archived. Thank you.
  14. Sale Pending to @cv01jw Discussions held and deposit awaited... As soon as that happens "Mod Team" I'll alert you and mark it as sold, even though the purchaser won't be collecting until Easter. Saves clogging the classifieds with a "pretty much done deal"...
