    C14/C14 Edge HD

    I'm looking for a C14 or a C14 Edge HD, possibly C11 Edge. Not to fussed about the cosmetics of the tube but would like nice clean optics. Drop me a PM if you've anything suitable thanks.
  4. Personally I think Gav's posts & IPhone shots are invaluable! For someone who has the kit and would stand half a chance to see some of these illusive targets, being able to see them as they would look through the eyepiece is great! The Cone nebula for one doesn't appear as I would have anticipated, with these photos at least I know what to look for and will stand a better chance of locating. Keep them coming Gav!
  5. I had the same issue on a C14 Edge, Steve's right it's a protective coating (as far as the C14 Edge is concerned) and could only be seen when the primary was dewed up. It looks very similar to tape, as if there's some been stuck on the primary at some stage. It doesn't look nice though and just looks poorly applied, whether it affects all units I don't know??? I've enclosed a photo of my C14 Edge which I got replaced at the time as no-one knew what it was (approx. 5 years ago) it also had the blue tinge which doesn't show up on this photo. EDIT: Just to add the corrector plate or camera had nothing to do with the blue tinge colour on the primary.
  6. Stu did you get my pm? I've not heard from you.
  7. I'm looking for a Tak LE 30mm if anyone has one they're willing to sell thanks.
  8. If you do sell the Taks I would be interested in both, especially the fs128. The Intes & one Tak would defo have to go if the choice was mine.
  9. Hi and welcome! Are you on the Derby side of the Peak District or the Staffordshire side?
  10. I don't think LZOS did any Lens' for the APM 80mm scopes unless they made the 80/600? I think it's most probably one of the Lomo Super Apo Triplet lens which went into the APM 80/480 scopes. Lomo stopped producing them so they are no longer available. They are also considered by many to be the best 80mm lens ever produced and are quite hard and pretty expensive to get hold of nowdays.
