  1. Hi again, all. Thanks for the continued welcomes, and for the pointers to various bits and pieces on here and AB&S. iapa and Neil H, thank you very much for your help. I think I may have taken too long to venture back to the forum, as both seem to be sale pending.
  2. Thanks everyone, nice to see some familiar names still knocking around. Mr. Spock - good advice, I should never have sold the NEQ6 I already had. Honestly, given it would be for visual use only, I could probably get away with something a bit smaller. I'm older, fatter, and my knees aren't what they were. Surprisingly, I've heard some positive things about C9.25 on AVX. Ultimately, given the amount of nights I'd realistically get to use it, I need to be a bit budget conscious. I've finally grown up and got myself a mortgage (!) so I can no longer pour my wages into an observatory (I s
  3. Hello all, Some of you might recognise my username, as I was a regular member between about 2011 and 2016ish. I'm just stopping by because I'm maybe in the market for a mount for a C9.25, so I thought I'd say hello whilst I was here. I hope you're all keeping well, and the last 18 months haven't been too difficult for you. As always, my best wishes to everyone Robin
  4. ** NOW SOLD ** A slightly older pair of binoculars, but still optically very good. Rubberised finish, which is a little whitened in places due to age, but the binos have been kept in a very good Topper case with a chest rest (all included in the sale). I'm asking £375 o.n.o. Unfortunately I'll have to ask £25 postage due to size, weight and value, but of course they alternatively can be collected by the buyer. I am open to sensible offers and will negotiate postage too. I was given these some time ago (along with the other binoculars I am advertising) but after a brief dabble, I am s
  5. **NOW SOLD** After several years excellent service, I am now selling my Takahashi E-180ED, along with the rest of my observatory. You may have seen this telescope for sale previously on AB&S, but after a couple of time-wasters and a house move, I am once again in a position to advertise this scope for sale. This astrograph is in very good condition. There is one small mark in the exterior paintwork (caused by a snail being dropped by a bird!). The secondary collimation screws have some paint missing. As with any Tak of this type, that is common, following any adjustments. There i
  6. Yes, very. And almost certainly not insured against damage, only loss.
  7. Hi. No, not sold, still available. I do have someone interested, but since no deposit or agreement has been reached, I am still happy to entertain other offers. :-)
  8. After several years excellent service, I am now selling my Takahashi E-180ED, along with the rest of my observatory. You may have seen this telescope for sale previously both on AB&S and here as part of a complete observatory sale. After a couple of time-wasters and a house move, I am once again in a position to advertise this scope for sale. This astrograph is in very good condition. There is one small mark in the exterior paintwork (caused by a snail being dropped by a bird!). The secondary collimation screws have some paint missing.

  9. Thank you :-) you wouldn't happen to have a link, would you?
  10. Hi Gus, I've not given much thought to selling things individually yet, but if I do, I'll be looking for the usual 60-65% of new price for things depending on condition. The Trius and filter wheel originally cost £3,800 and £700 respectively, if that gives you any idea. Drop me a PM if you're interested, and thanks for looking. :-)
  11. Just to add, I would be able to transport to SWAF this summer, or entertain any visit from an interested party if they were planning to attend SWAF.
  12. Thanks for the kind words, Errol. It's a heartbreaking decision, as I've worked hard to put it all together and get it working well. But my enthusiasm has been eroded by various factors (weather, LED streetlights, council trees, personal reasons) and it just sits there unused. I'd rather see it getting used again by someone who has the enthusiasm I used to have.
  13. Please excuse the bizarre nature of this advert. I understand that it's a bit unconventional, but if you would indulge me I would appreciate it. Thanks for looking. COMPLETE OBSERVATORY FOR SALE £10,000 It's with a heavy heart that I have to start the process of selling the observatory. If I can find a single buyer who wants a complete system, then I'd like to sell it in its entirety, complete with the desktop full of all the software and calibration frames needed to start imaging immediately. If I have to start breaking things down to sell individually, then I will start asking
