  1. Oo, an LS60F. When you decide to sell it next week, do PM me first.
  2. So... I went to buy a Takahashi FSQ-106ED. Yay! Sorry, Sir, not in stock. None even in Europe. Give us a couple of months to make you one. I went to buy an Atik Horizon. Hey! Sorry, Sir. Not in stock. We only have our demo version. And that's not for sale. We'll have to put you on a waiting list. I went to buy a Lunt 60. Wow! Can you wait a few weeks Sir? Er... no. I went to buy a Lunt LS60FHa elalon. Sorry, they won't be ready for two months. Ad infinitum Is this normal in modern astronomy? Apart from keeping the used market healthy, why are companies not keeping stocks any more?
  3. I was going to write "Narrow banded" but I didn't want to cause offence.
  4. I think you mean "magenta filtered lenses".
  5. That's quite a list of 'seller's regret'. I have to admit that selling something is a sure-fire way for subsequently finding a use for it. My "Two year" rule was once a "One year" rule.
  6. Of course, the action of buying this Lunt has resulted in the entire country being plunged into a weather hell-hole. Um... sorry about that!
  7. Hi Carole, What did you regret selling?
  8. What did the postman bring?

    Yup, I even have the t-shirt!
  9. I have a rule that if I haven't used something after two years, then it gets put on the kill list. I feel the worst when thinking about selling something. Once the deed is done though, I rarely think again about it.
  10. Amateur Astrophotography Magazine

    Hi Steve, Is there a Contents listing of each issue? The site shows thumbnails and I have to click each issue cover separately and read the cover to find what they subjects are about. Cheers
  11. What did the postman bring?

    They have already, though you may hit a few planning issues!
  12. Another suspicious eBay sale

    Though not before I bought the bike.
  13. Another suspicious eBay sale

    I have to admit, when it was £99, I didn't think much of it, though at £36,000 it has become much more attractive!
  14. Another suspicious eBay sale

    I'm sure that I saw that Tak some weeks ago. I'm assuming that the account owner lost access to their account. What is odder, is one of their other listings has been bid up to £36k ... for a bicycle! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Thorn-Nomad-MK2-S-S-Rohloff-Touring-Expedition-Bike-Cycle-Matt-Black-565M/332587213979?hash=item4d6fbe249b:g:6YwAAOSwXj5aqsld
  15. Well, I now have a 60mm and what a difference! The day was kinder than expected and provided a few minutes of clear sky, so I got "my" first light with it. As advised, the image was larger, surface detail was much more obvious and very much sharper. There is a nice prom at around 7 o'clock that is so much easier to see. It's a shame that I didn't have more time today, though I 'm happy. Many thanks to garryblueboy. First class trade and top advice.
