  7. Must admit i thought of having a bid at this scope 2 but have read very mixed reviews and as olly says the newer scopes have pushed the older ones very close and may of even surpassed them and you can buy the skywatcher ed 120 for around £750 with the case. second hand.
  8. I Think you bought a scope with great potential with very good mirrors But in my opinion in this country the seeing conditions tend to limit the scopes capabilitys I have had many scopes apo's acro's newts sct's macks and have found that scopes between 6 to 8 inches perform a lot more of the time in this wonderful country of ours Clear skies
  9. A few ortho's maybe But second hand well i just bought a 6"triplet f 10.5( john owen lens) and the tube made by the late Ron irving and i must say i am very happy with it for anyone who doe's not know of john well he is one of the old school makers of lenses/mirrors and is still making mirrors today I am sure Peter Drew know's john and as i say i can only speak from personal expereance that john is really helpful when it comes to cleaning/collimating/making mirrors a great guy to know and not to many like him left in the uk i suspect.
  10. AP 178 REFRACTOR ,ALTER D6 WITH AWR GOTO UPGRADE ,EYEPIECES, CG5 MOUNT, 100MM BINOCULARS ECT WHO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE WORTH
