  1. I have a pair of silver top plossl eyepieces 25mm and 10mm. They are unbranded but look similar to circle V/Celestron. Condition is still very good. £30 for the pair delivered.
  2. I messaged you already. Please check your Private Message inbox.
  3. Yes I think so, if you can add some postage. I'll PM you the details.
  4. I have a StarSense kit that is not really getting used, hence am looking for a sale. Everything is in very good condition, and all the components are pretty much new. No damages or even scratches on them. Including the StarSense camera, StarSense hand controller, mounting plate, and power/comms cable. Retailing at £300, asking for £220 delivered.
  5. Not sure if it is the correct place to discuss this, but if the coating won't help too much with light transmission, what is the coating for on the corrector? I saw its the case in some other posts, it would be interesting to try out if this is real. But it seems there aren't too many spares for such optical components on the market.
  6. Hi seems to me it's on both inside and outside. I did try to clean it on both sides and to be honest the corrector is very clean in the sense of dust or grease. I can't wipe the spots off as they look like actual damages on the coating material (possibly due to seeing etc.?). That's why I'm potentially looking for a replacement corrector plate. Thank you, Michael and Philip, for your advise regarding moving the plate to exactly position when reassembling. Yes I did mark the position before taking it off.
  7. A long shot - I have a Meade 8" deforked SCT but the corrector plate has a lot of spots on the coating due to ageing. I'm thinking of replacing a corrector plate for it if possible. Does anyone happen to have one available from spares? or does anyone know any dealers/distributors that would supply such parts? Thanks.
  8. I have available for sale is a vintage TAL 100R scope with its wooden tripod. The scope body has some scratch marks on the paintwork. The included dewshield and diagonal are in very good condition. The front lens is clean overall, but I do notice a mark on the lens coating at the edge. The finder scope is good as well although the finder mount is a bit shaky and I used some PTFE tape on the finder mount screws. The tripod is in very good overall condition as well, however one of the hasp and staple lock for eyepiece tray is missing, that's also reason that I didn't use the set up too much. The EQ mount looks fine and a counterweight is included as well. I'm not sure about the value of this model at the moment, so I'm looking at probably £200, but will accept reasonably offers. I think I have a large enough box and enough packing materials so I'm able to pack it up securely and send. UK postage is included in price. Overall the condition of the telescope is reasonable I think, considering its age. However some DIY is needed on the tripod.
  9. You just need a EQDir cable for EQ5. They are available from retailers or on eBay.
  10. As Dave pointed out, you don't need the hand controller, you just need to install EQMOD in PC and plug in EQDir cable into the hand controller port.
  11. Maybe it's time to move to EQMOD? It costs less and functionality is more versatile.
