  1. Hi all,

    Thanks for the interest, i have responded to the PM's.

    John, sorry but i am not able to ship outside of the UK, sorry if this was not clear in the original post. Additionally, at this time i would not be prepared to accept that amount.

    For clarity, i have edited my original post to include the offers requirement mentioned in the forum rules.

    Andy


  2. For Sale is my Televue 3-6 mm Nagler Zoom.

    In as new condition, bought late last year from FLO, the box having only been opened to check the contents and to take these photos. I sold my refractor telescopes shortly after acquiring this eyepiece, and it is not really suitable for my remaining SCT, so its time for it to find a new home rather than sitting in a cupboard.

    The price is £260 OVNO delivered in the UK only (Royal Mail Special Delivery, tracked and insured).

    Payment via PayPal please.

    Any questions please ask.

    Thanks,

  3. For Sale is my Sky-Watcher Esprit 80 ED PRO Triplet including field flattener and Bahtinov mask. It has been ES Reid bench tested prior to dispatch from FLO where it tested AOK. They don't provide a certificate or stickers but i have attached the screenshot of the order as proof (see below).

    In unused and as new condition. It was purchased in March last year and has never had first light, sadly. I have decided to give up on my deep space observation plans due to work and personal commitments meaning i just don't have the time for the hobby right now.

    So to be clear, this sale includes:

    • Esprit Telescope OTA (ES Reid tested AOK)
    • Heavy Duty Foam-Lined Storage/Transportation Case
    • 2” Dielectric Star Diagonal
    • 9x50 Right-Angled Erect Image Finderscope
    • Dovetail Mounting Shoe
    • Sky-Watcher Field Flattener for Esprit-80
    • StarSharp Bahtinov Focus Mask

    Due to the size and weight (approx 20 kg, 4 kg OTA and 16 kg case) i would prefer collection only, added to the fact i no longer have the cardboard box it was shipped in. It is in a rather heavy duty case though! So, if you wish i can look into shipment (UK only please) or you can organize your own.

    The price is £750 collected, which is a considerable saving over the current list price of £1250!

    Payment via PayPal 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

  4. For Sale is my ZWO ASI 183MM-PRO USB 3.0 Cooled Mono Camera.

    In as new condition, the box having only been opened to check it works and to take these photos. I have decided to give up on my deep space observation plans for now due to work and personal commitments meaning i just don't have the time for the hobby right now.

    Price is £600 collected or £611 delivered in the UK only (Royal Mail Special Delivery, tracked and insured).

    Payment via PayPal or cash (if collected).

    Lovely little package was awaiting me today after work. 

    Got better when I opened it up.

    A nice shiny Herschel wedge. Thought I'd have a crack at solar viewing for a change. 

    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.


  6. 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.

    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,

  7. 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.

  8. A small haul courtesy of FLO and delivered by a friendly chap from DPD called Dave.

    IMG_0132.jpg.e5eeb092ce985312b4f71958f5a0eeb1.jpg

    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.

    IMG_0133.jpg.c822e577c1cd22119dda113163de9fd2.jpg

    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.

    IMG_0134.jpg.8684ddf86fa1bcfd3e551fb5f5630448.jpg

    After much debating, especially a SharpCap owner, i took the plunge an d got myself a QHY Polemaster plus adapter for my AZEQ6.

    IMG_0135.jpg.c7fa7649bdb1d2e4d96beab654b2f1ad.jpg

    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.

    IMG_0136.jpg.30bbfa7a2830abd8f8a931d7aeeff0cc.jpg

    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!

  9. 4 hours ago, FLO said:

    Knowing ZWO they will be sure to have new sensor models out as they are always rapidly developing - next up is the new electronic auto focuser (EAF) due in the next month.

    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).


  10. 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!
