Heads up - a Celestron NexImage 5 colour CCD has just gone up in the classifieds for £120 - good price! :)

In fact, he's put a few bit and pieces on that might be of some interest to people, including a Revelation EP and filter set, and a Hyperion zoom EP :)

Can you do both? I'd go to winscarr now but I'm cooking a chicken lol

Could do both in the garden easily yes. Winscarr is a bit more tricky but not impossible. Still undecided.

Finished my flight case (for now), and fitted my other EPs, 2x barlow and colour/moon filters from my other Celestron kit into the same case.

As I treat myself to new EPs I can move out any that I won't be using as much.

At least I only have to grab the one case when I go out viewing now.

Job's a good 'un! :)

I went and bought one from maplin yesterday and got all of my stuff in it too they are pretty neat little cases?

User name "springbok" - have you ever looked in the classifieds Adam?

Click the link at the top of the page - worth looking at daily as there can be some good deals to be had, but you have to be quick :)

That's why I gave everyone the heads up as it had only just been posted when I checked on there.

I have a quick look every time I log on lol

My case came with the foam already fitted inside - it's that stuff that's in little squares, so you just cut away what you don't need - easy.

It's ok for light bits of kit, but would not offer enough support for heavy things, such as mounts etc.

You'd need much firmer packing for that kind of kit :)

I've got my EQ5 mount head in one, seems solid enough, but I guess no where near as big or heavy as an HEQ5 or EQ6
