  3. Hi all, Please let me know if you are thinking of selling your Vixen SX2 with Starbook One - preferably with Vixen tripod and Polar Scope but not essential. Willing to pay well for a good condition example! Cheers, Rob

  5. I have an unbranded one that you can have for £10 plus postage? PM me if interested

    Vixen SLV 4mm

    Hi all Please let me know if you have a Vixen SLV 4mm that you are looking to sell! Cheers, Rob
  10. I have one that I bought but never used that I would be happy to let you have inexpensively. It doesn't come with the illuminator or RA setting circle though if that's ok..?
  11. Hi All I've been planning a move to the Plymouth area from Bristol for some time now and probably would have already if it weren't for the pesky Covid-19!!! My wife's family are from down there and I did some looking for decent spots on Dartmoor. The best I found exploring from the Plymouth side was the 2 car parks on the Whiteworks road a couple of miles South of Princetown. I haven't visited at night so I don't know what the city skyglow will be like as it's about 9 miles NE of Plymouth. The further North and East you go, the better it will be I guess! Anyway once we sell our
  12. Hi Brendan I've been through a similar thought process and recently ordered an AZ8 plus Weight System as an observing only setup for my OOUK CT8 which is about 10.5kg all up. At a future date I MAY add a Nexus DSC kit for stand-alone push-to I did consider the Skytee 2 very briefly but honestly I just wanted something better engineered, even if I didn't originally have Losmandy in mind! The AZ100 looks fabulous but higher capacity than I needed as @johninderby has said - it also costs a chunk more than an AZ8 once you add on a mounting plate, Berlebach tripod, counterweight se
  13. Hi John! We have the same RACI although I have mounted a Skysurfer III onto mine for coarse pointing duties. Having now installed the new red CR2 focuser onto my CT8, I'm finding that even with the 1" + 0.5" thick mounting blocks, I am still 4-6mm away from being able to focus with some of my Radians. I guess the focal plane is just particularly far out from the tube axis as the CTs are primarily designed as imaging Newts? Anyhow, I have had to order up a 1.5" Moonlite extension tube from FLO which I am now waiting 4-6 weeks to come into stock =O Looking forward to catching u
  14. It’s arrived =O Hollywood General Machining’s finest engineering all the way from Burbank California! Just awaiting the Weight System now...
