  1. I put a wanted advert for an eyepiece last March & I was messaged privately to email direct if I wanted to buy it. The person had only just joined & had zero ratings. I Ignored that message & as I was suspicious.
  2. Just bought a pair from Microglobe, they had them in stock before Christmas for my Mak 150.
  3. Good pair of 10x50 bins in the for sale section if you’re quick
  4. Not the postman, but . SCT R&P focuser from the wife. Another addition for the Mak 150. Merry Christmas everyone.
  5. Didn’t think all would arrive before Christmas after ordering last weekend, Covid-19, the back log on the mainland & then having to cross the Irish Sea. 182mm tube rings from Microglobe, 11inch ADM dovetail & other items from FLO, handle from WDS & M8 -M6 spacers from Fleebay. Now to fit to my SW Mak 150 & flock the inside at same time. Well done to all suppliers & Merry Christmas to me! & all on SGL
  6. Frac meet Mak! Crisp clear night to try out the new Mak 150 partnered with the TS 80mm photo line. Pin sharp views on the moon in both scopes, perfect partnership!
  7. Got a few pics in daylight at 4pm before they disappeared behind the roof top of the house opposite. Easily viewed with 14mm Morpheus & Mak 150 between the clouds. Not a good forecast for tomorrow though.
  8. With the weather forecast tomorrow 100% clouds at 4-5pm & pretty clear late afternoon today, I got my Mak 150 out for a look before they disappear over the roof tops. Searched out Jupiter in the finder as still light at 4pm. Both Jupiter and Saturn easily in the same view in my 14mm Morpheus. Beautiful sight with Saturn hovering above Jupiter. Got a couple of phone pics to keep also.
  9. amazing find! All complete & original boxes
  10. Delivery courtesy of FLO. Skymax 150 Mak in the Black Friday sale & a ADM saddle for my Ercole.
  11. The only zoom I have experienced is the Hyperflex 7.2-21.5. Good quality construction, smooth zoom action, excellent views & not expensive. I bought two to use in my binoviewers. Never regretted my purchase. Use at both f7 & f12 & the quality is really good. I have viewed the moon in cyclops with the hyperflex & Baader Morpheus eyepieces & there ain’t much between them, that’s how good the hyperflex is! Don’t have any problem with zoom settings without click stop in the binoviewers. You can judge the magnification using the view in each eye quiet accurately.
