  1. What are your impressions of this? I am in a tizzle over this and the Baader one. Its almost £100 more but i do know Baader stuff is top notch.
  2. Some of you may be aware that i have been offloading some of my Astro kit these last few weeks. This was what the money went towards. Courtesy of FLO via ES Reid: Pleased as punch and it lives up to all my expectations in quality. Just figuring out my imaging train but will be hoping for some clear skies next week! Cheers, Andy
  3. Hi Wim, I got a ZWO OAG from FLO on Tuesday and it was the newer variant. No stalk wobble issues and it seem to be a well engineered piece of kit. I have yet to test it out on my rig, maybe tomorrow. Cheers, Andy
  4. A small haul courtesy of FLO and delivered by a friendly chap from DPD called Dave. Hubble torch so i can finally get around to fitting Bobs Knobs on my SCT. Not the greatest build quality but its functionality seems spot on. I decided to delve into the black art of OAG'ing with this little chap from ZWO and also a bubble level attachment to bring my 1st gen ZWO ADC up to spec. After much debating, especially a SharpCap owner, i took the plunge an d got myself a QHY Polemaster plus adapter for my AZEQ6. And finally, an ADM saddle replacement for the standard AZEQ6 saddle. Safe to say that this is a big upgrade in both surface area and quality. Pricey but worth it imho. All in all some nice upgrades to my kit and all delivered in less than 24 hour from ordering. Keep up the good work FLO!
  5. I am also really interested in this. Looking forward to more info and a preorder/price details . Back to the cameras, I can certainly see why they dropped the ones they have. Here is hoping that another fantastic new series of cameras is on the horizon (some of the most popular ones are getting long in the tooth).
  6. Thanks for the input on this age old thread, much appreciated. Common sense tells me to go with the Pentax, however if i go for aesthetics, the Delos is much more fitting to my ES collection. Joking aside, every review i have seen raves about the Pentax, especially the comfort. I will save myself £60 and go with the majority. Thanks everyone!
  7. First off, sorry for resurrecting an old thread. What are peoples thoughts on these two eye pieces in this day and age, after a lot more people have has had a chance to get hold of the Delos. Is it still toss coin time between the Pentax and Televue or is there more to it?
  8. What happened to its eyes? ? Tempted but must resist.
  9. For Sale is my Sky-Watcher Evostar 72ED DS-Pro OTA. Purchased new in February 2018. In excellent condition having been used <6 times since purchase, it comes packaged in the original aluminum travel case. Selling as i would like to try a different scope which sadly requires me to free up some cash/space first. Price is £175 collected. I could potentially post in the UK for +£10 but it would be at your own risk. Payment via PayPal, bank transfer or cash (if collected). I am located in the Harrogate area of North Yorkshire but would be willing to travel a short distance if it helped. Thanks, Andy
  10. For Sale is my Sky-Watcher Explorer 130P-DS. Purchased new in January 2018. In excellent condition with just the usual signs of usage - mark on the draw tube outside from the crayford focuser and minor clamp marks on the vixen (both highlighted in the photos below). Once collimated it proveds excellent views. I bought the scope with the intention of using it for imaging but in the end it has only had very light visual use. As i have three other scopes, this hardly gets any use these days and must now make room for other things. The sale included the items included in the box: 130P-DS OTA 6x30 Finderscope 2 inch drawtube adapter 1.25 inch drawtube adapter Collimation screwdriver and allen key Dust caps for the OTA, dual speed focuser and drawtube Skywatcher 28 mm 2 inch eyepiece Price is £104 collected. I could potentially post in the UK for +£15 but as i don't have the original box this is a risk i don't think is worth it. Payment via PayPal, bank transfer or cash (if collected). I am located in the Harrogate area of North Yorkshire but would be willing to travel a short distance if it helped. Thanks, Andy
  11. For Sale is my Baader Mark-III Coma Corrector. Purchased new in February 2018. This is as new, only removed from the packaging for the photographs. I bought it with the aim of imaging with my 130PDS but in the end i decided to go in a different direction and it has just sat in a drawer for a year. Price is £80 collected or £86 delivered in the UK. Payment via PayPal, bank transfer or cash (if collected). I am located in the Harrogate area of North Yorkshire. Thanks, Andy
  12. Thanks, Mark. Its packaged up and will be picked up by the courier tomorrow for delivery to you on Wednesday. I'll send the tracking info via PM once i have it. Thanks again, Andy
  13. For Sale is my Celestron HD Heavy Duty Pro Wedge. Purchased new from FLO in December 2017. This is brand new and has never even been removed from the packaging, the box having been opened only to check the contents. It is designed to be used on the Celestron fork mounts (CPS, Evolution etc) to basically convert them into an EQ mount. Its for sale as i have now gone in a different direction and am in the process of selling my Celestron Evolution mount. Price is £220 OVNO collected or £235 delivered in the UK (with packaging it weighs 17 kg). Payment via PayPal, bank transfer or cash (if collected). I am located in the Harrogate area of North Yorkshire but would be willing to travel a short distance if it helped. Thanks, Andy
  14. For Sale is my Celestron StarSense Autoalign. Purchased new in December 2017. In excellent condition having been used maybe 3-4 times in total. It enables you to be star aligned and observing in minutes. Once calibrated to your scope, i found it to be very accurate in its goto slewing. Its for sale only because i am in the process of selling my Celestron mount and it is not compatible with my SkyWatcher mount. Price is £200 OVNO collected or £210 delivered in the UK. Payment via PayPal, bank transfer or cash (if collected). I am located in the Harrogate area of North Yorkshire but would be willing to travel a short distance if it helped. Thanks, Andy
