  1. Thanks for your replies will get a few different sizes as your right John they’re not expensive
  2. Got one on order from SVbony in China. Waiting for it to arrive. Let me know what you think of it
  3. Postman dropped off a nice piece of German glass today. Baader Morpheus 14mm thanks to David Hardie. Had a quick first light with Andromeda & Saturn & must say I’m very happy with the views. Going to get very expensive now building up my new eyepiece collection now I’ve been spoiled . Also tested my other recent acquisition, Altair 60mm finder/guider RACI. Happy bunny .
  4. Hi starlight, it’s right angle, correct image finder scope. 90 degree diagonal with correct image views
  5. Before I purchase one, I’m wondering if anyone has a 50 or 60 mm RACI with illuminated eyepiece they would like to sell? Thanks Andy.
  6. Can’t believe it! Just ordered a M54 adapter yesterday from FLO
  7. It’s really smooth, but you do have to balance the scopes carefully as not great resistance on the alt az adjusters. The movements are butter smooth though, would recommend at its price if you want a T mount. Thanks Andy.
  8. Quick view of the moon at 7am this morning, as it’s been too cloudy since my 150p arrived earlier this week. Getting happier with my setup now, more of what I envisaged a few months ago when I purchased the mount & Mak. There is quite a lot of overlap with the two scopes, but using the Mak a lot for Bino viewing & enjoying it. A few bits of tweaking with the 150p ( flocking, RACI, RDF, motor focuser & cooling fan) over the coming months are planned. Looking forward to the darker nights, but not the cold
  9. Done similar mods to my heritage earlier this year Mark. Flocked the tube, added finder brackets for a 6x30 RACI & RDF, put a compass & bubble level on base & screws for secondary. Also adapted a tripod to mount it. Great little scope. Really handy for quick grab & go! Lent mine out at the moment though.
  10. SW explorer 150p arrived from FLO today. Cobra cases bag also arrived. The 150p fits like a glove!
