Anyone else been lusting after this refractor ?


Recommended Posts

I guess some of the keen refractor fans will have found this already. I really must stop looking at this advert - there is a recession on after all :rolleyes2: :

It might be a little undermounted, it seems to dwarf even the EQ6.

If anyone on the forum buys it, it would be great to see some more photos :grin:

Darn right - been trying to pursuade the missus that this is just what i need to go with the new TAL - this and a decent pier and an obsy :). Fortunately sense prevails (and the wallet definitely says not).

Know what you mean about that mount - very precarious looking :eek: !

it's a beat for sure. the price is actually very good when you consider what's with it. not for me though. those legs get in the way.

I thought the price not bad either but still well beyond my current means, unfortunately. I'd prefer it on a simple heavy duty fork alt-azimuth mount and a tall pillar I think - a sort of "vintage" look :smiley:

Me too. Bit nearer for me than Alan, but I'd love to come up to see the scope, Keith.

As for that big cruxis dob, I could lay it on its side, put a shroud over it and my tent problems for PSP12 are sorted ;).

Looks pretty damned good to me. Do you think he would accept £299.50, 'cos that is all I can afford at the moment (well it does say or near offer - and my offer would be exact, just with the decimal point in the wrong place). :smiley:

The achromat really looks great, but I'd go for the dob too. After all, great as it looks the frac is a 6", It is not going to show anything that my C8 cannot show. For that kind of money I could get a C11 (or a new 16" dob), which would be far easier to transport in the car. I cannot see the 6" F/12 at 2m length fit easily in my car (a Renault Espace), unless I put the wife and kids up on the roof rack (and I guess they would protest, even though the youngest might say "COOL!!!" ;) )
