  1. Hi all. Looking at possibly getting a secondhand Opticstar AR90S f5.5 short refractor, primarily to use with binoviewers, but also to use on my Goto mount I have, and possible in the future too for some EAA too perhaps.. Looks like quite a good quality scope so just wondering if any members have/had one and how it performed for you. Cheers, Gus
  2. For sale opticstar maksutov cassegrain F12.5. F 1900mm long focal length telescope, great condition throughout, except the attached dovetail bar which has the usual marks (see pics). Also comes with a decent finderscope and end caps and home made dew cap. Great visual scope. Selling due to upgrade and fund a larger scope. Price £220, collection only, unless someones prepaired to take the risk and pay extra for the delivery.
  3. After selling on my good old ST120 'frac, and getting a new Celestron 6/8 SE Goto mount I needed a smaller good quality grab and go scope that would fit on the new Goto mount too, and be nice and portable too. So on Monday I pressed the button on an Opticstar AR90S refractor to fill this roll, which arrived today. I managed a brief view through it before clouds fully piled in tonight, and got a great nice widefield view of the Pleides on my Porta mount. Hoping to test it out more on the Celestron Goto mount over the next few days/weekend. Came with a dual speed Crayford focuser, which is rotatable, and very good quality build and optics. Not an ED no, but very good views with nice contrast too for a f5.5 scope. Nicely clear on the mount too when pointing at zenith, so should prove no problems as this only weights in at 2.3kg, so with diagonal and EP that's around 2.5kg or so. I'll do a review of it for a proper first light soon. A few pics below!
