Hi there.

Would you sell the  StarSharp Bahtinov Mask separate?
If it has the screws and all that so it attaches to the OTA, I'd be interested.
Could paypal or bank transfer the money to you, if you add on say the cost of postage too. :)

Thanks
Mike

Hello,

Ideally I'd have sold it all together, but I can sell both the Bahtinov mask and Geoptik bag separately I suppose :)

I'll have to measure the mask and see how much P&P will be for you @Hailfire101.

Are you in the area @Spaceboy & able to collect the Geoptik bag?

Send me a PM if you like and we'll go from there?

Hi, I'm rather interested in your OTA, but can't collect. Would you consider posting it? I had a quick look and some courier services aren't that expensive. I'm abroad ATM but I have an address in London area where it could be delivered.

      Hey guys!i need to make this quick! I want to get a new 6mm eyepiece.I have a 8" f6 dob and i want to get a nice 200 mag and put the telescope to its limits at 400x
      The most i ve seen with is 240x for Jupiter and Saturn .i ve heard they looked stunning at 400x and i am keen on trying it.Ive got my eyes on a 6mm Skywatcher UWA eyepiece.and i have a Bst Starguider 2z Barlow lens.And i seem to be having problems with my 8mm Bst Starguider (300x in total).the bst has a 16mm eye relief and a 21mm lens diameter,but when i barlowed it and look at the moon yesterday,it was hard finding the right spot to look through the eyepiece and when i moved the image disappeared.I dont know if it will have that effect on planets,when I looked at mars it was fine but i definitely want to avoid that from happening again.Will it happen?
      The Skywatcher eyepiece i want to buy has a 16mm eye relief too.I dont want to make the same mistake now , i want a 6mm eyepiece at the price range of 50-70 euro either from flo or amazonuk.If the Skywatcher will have similar results,can you suggest another one?

      Wrapping up in double layer goose feathers I braved the obsy last night.  I planned a tour of Auriga with a view to chucking in some favourites.  I set up the ED150 on the AZ EQ 6 and fitted the WO quartz diagonal accompanied by my ES 20mm 82'.  I stuffed my Astronomik 1.25" UHC (bargain price thanks @FLO) in my pocket too.  This set up required the retro children's playroom chair with the legs sawn down due to the position of Auriga. I spent about half an hour checking the plethora of open clusters sprinkled in or near the Milky Way.  The sky was one of the best this season so it was a jewelled spectacle and the ED150 reveals such sharp colours enabling me to distinguish the cooler stars in some of the clusters particularly the occasional red giant.  As Monoceros reached the meridian I moved to the open cluster associated with the Rosette. Now, for all my efforts over the years, the emission nebulosity has eluded my eyes but tonight with this newish 6" frac I was somewhat taken aback to see a doughnut appear in the view.  Switching to a view with the UHC filter was nothing short of astonishing!  It wasn't just there; I was falling into its centre.  Texture, depth and dark globules were easily discernible.  The extent was slightly larger than the FOV with the 20mm so I slewed slowly around and the perimeters and varying consistency of the Ha emission were easily picked out.  I spent a long and happy time soaking this up; it was truly outstanding.  Thoroughly recommended.  I retired happily to the warm kitchen and toast.

      Hello all!
      I just installed this Lacerta 1:10 Micro Transmission focuser on my 8” Skywatcher Dobsonian. It is a direct replacement for the stock focuser and works extremely well. I was surprised at how easy it was to install! Ordered it from 365Astronomy and got fast shipping.

      This is probably my options as of now:I will definetly buy a 12mm BST Starguider A 2X BST Barlow( So thats 100x and 200x magnification) 
      AND Either:
      15MM BST STARGUIDER VS 25MM STARGUIDER
      My dobsonian telescope will include:A 25mm and 10mm Eyepiece . So the obvious awnser is to go for the 15mm BUT i ve read in reviews that the bst s have are noticabely better than the eyepieces that come with my telescope.So i am wondering, should i buy the 25mm or the 15mm BST? 
       
      Also is it worth to barlow either 25mm eyepiece to make 12.5mm and ditch the 12mm i am definetly buying for a 6mm one? i am thinking not because if i barlow the 6 mm it will give me 400x and i think that is too much magnification for the image to appear clear , plus i will also barlow the 10 mm to give me a 240x the acceptable limit for good clarity / magnification ratio (i ve read that and not sure if its true or not). Thanks again for your time and help!
      This forum has been very polite, welcoming and kind to noobs like me just getting into the hobby XD I hope i can one day look back at myself and laugh at my ignorance! This site has been truly amazing and i hope i can stay a member for a long time to come!
      Thanks as always
      Clear skies everyone
