  1. Hi Robert ,I`ve got a set of Garrett Signature 28x110,they are very good and very heavy ,do not underestimate the mount you will need,Oberwerk Helios, APM all do 28 x110mm versions. My set need collimating as i have a double image,they have been very reliable and i could recomend then,i mount mine on a very large parallelogram,would not like to have a lighter mount as i feel it would compromise the performance.I`ve just checked and Rothervallyoptics stock the apollo!!! Good luck in your search. Regards Mike
  2. Dai,me thinks your having a tipple or two!!!!!!!!!!!! Roll on Autumn, Mike
  3. Hi Damian,what do the weathermen know,and it would not surprise me if it stays clear,enjoy, Regards Mike
  4. Hi All, it would be nice to know if the handle`s have a smooth underside, i ask only that W/Optic original handle on the mk1 GT81 looked very tactile but had hard edge`s on the underside and when the scope had been out for a time the hard edge and the cold made using it very uncomfortable, i ended up wrapping tape around it. I wish FLO the best of luck with their new endevour. Regards Mike
  5. Hi Sunshine, don`t waste anymore time, youi have a couple of choices ,remove alminium,carefully, and replace with a strip of laminate,having sanded the remains of any adhesive, or sand the aluminium and cover with laminate,then trim to correct width,Repace "Nylon blocks" with virgin teflon. Try this company for bits " http://www.scopestuff.com/#ATM Stuff Regards Mike
