  1. A very engaging read indeed. Many thanks for sharing this. The instrument sounds like a serendipitous find and its clearly in a good home. As you say, JO made a small number of these triplets, I am aware of a couple of others, but I wonder where the other instruments now reside?
  2. Very sad indeed to hear this news, Kieron was such a fixture at events such as Astrofest going back years. Always knowledgable, quietly understated and always very helpful. Please pass on heartfelt condolences to his family and RIP Kieron, a gentleman who will be missed.
  3. In addition t the great books mentioned already S&T Pocket Sky Atlas - https://www.shopatsky.com/pocket-sky-atlas and Peter Birren's Objects in the heavens - http://www.birrendesign.com/astro.html are two guides I often use with my binoculars and scopes
  4. Hi. I have a black non go-to HEQ5 mount head for sale (no tripod), I also have a portable pier for it too if you're interested? Cheers, Ben

      Ben, Many thanks for your message, very interested in your mount, can you tell me about its condition, and are you the original owner. I assume it is all working and drives as it should. Also tell me about the pier. What are you looking for price wise?

      Sorry, also have you any pictures of the kit
