  1. Jules you are spot on with those comments. The F10 4" Tal are superb achromats . Great buy Ian! cheers Dave
  2. Hi, I have an immaculate Skywatcher ed100 pro along with an earlier black version HEQ5 mount , Not goto it's the older version with just 3 speed hand controller. It has upgraded 2" dia Stainless tripod legs and mount is in great condition a few little marks on it but it is a perfect rock solid match to the refractor. Much lighter than the eq6 but much beefier than an eq5 . I am thinking of getting a bit more aperture and may be interested to trade . The Ed100 is full factory kit with Aluminum case . Comes with 9x50 finder and 2" diagonal along with 2" 28mm eyepice . Totally unblemished with perfect optic. I attach a few pics I took yesterday (had a quick look at the winter sun , I have a solar filter I would include. I am not a million miles away in Southport Merseyside . I don't mind traveling or meeting up . Anyway let me know your thoughts ! Cheers Dave

    Reduced to £875 .
  6. Hi all, I have for sale my CPC800 full set up in as new condition. It is a superb bit of kit with integral GPS and SkyAlign technology. Simple to set up and very accurate . Optics are excellent , have a few specs of dust with use but are untouched as they should be. I won't go into full blurb as you can all look that up for yourselves! I have added 2" Baader visual back with compression ring coupled to a superb Altair Astro 2" 10th wave dialectric diagonal. Also comes with flexible dew shield and a Maplins regulated dc power supply that is a must for this scope. The scope is just over 2 years old originally from First light optics and I am the 2nd owner and have had the scope for 9months. It has performed faultlessly in that time and is a fantastic all round easy to live with bit of kit. Don't have packaging and original manual was misplaced by first owner but instruction manual is online at Celestron's website.. It is an easy scope to use though! Any questions please ask ! This is 2k worth of kit new..I m selling for £875 collected. Please note not looking for offers , it is in pristine condition (I take pride in keeping my kit immaculate) apart from a few dust specs. First to see will buy of that I am sure! I live in Southport Merseyside and you are welcome to pop in and take a look if local enough. Please message me or drop an e-mail to Davetracey2009@btinternet.com Cheers, Dave
