I've searched the internet (or CN and SGL) and found mixed info about these...
Do any of you own ES 52, how good are they really? Are they premium simple design like TV plossl, with nice premium coating? Or they are just some nothing special eyepiece with ES stamped on it?
I can't seem to find any on used market, so no one is selling them. There doesn't seem to be much hype about them now...
I also found some huge review here, from someone who signed up just to make that review, it does seem a bit odd 👨👩👧👧...
Heyyy its meee kronos and i have been wondering about getting a filter...I really want the best contrast and brightness i can on my nebulas(i want to view M42 M57 M27 M31 M81 M82 and lots more) with my future 8" dob. Is this filter really going to help me?
If it just a matter of quality of the filter itself can you suggest a better one in the same price range?
Or will not the uhc filter help me in general .IF so can you reccomend another one?
Also is this https://www.firstlightoptics.com/uhc-oiii-visual-filters/uhc-filter.html this https://www.firstlightoptics.com/uhc-oiii-visual-filters/es_uhc_filter_125.html https://www.firstlightoptics.com/uhc-oiii-visual-filters/baader-uhc-s-filter.html this better?
For sale is my lovely Explore Scientific APO ED 102mm triplet refractor.
Lovely condition, great optics that are unmarked and blemish free, views are stunning and pin sharp.
Selling due to lack of use, as a recent change of job keeps me away from home quite a bit, so its not getting any use.
Essential 102mm triplet APO refractor
Tube rings with integrated carry handle
2 inch visual back / adaptors and focuser
It is the essentials model so didn't come with any finder or diagonal.
Price is £450 ovno due to condition and inclusion of vixen dovetail.
Payment accepted is cash, cheque or bank transfer (which is easiest) or PayPal if buyer pays fees.
Pick up only or can meet half way by arrangement - don't really like sending optics through the post.
Thanks for reading and if you have any questions then please pm me and we can discuss in more detail.
I am wanting to take up astrophotography and recently sold my Celestron 5se as this was not giving me the results I want.
I have been researching scopes over the last year or so and have made a short list based on what I can afford and what will give me the results I am after and of course build quality.
My short list in no particular order is
Explore scientific 80 triplet
William optics z61
My dilemma is which one to go with. All the reviews are equally as good although 1 or 2 negative notes on the skywatcher but not enough to put me off. Whatever I go with will most likely be a second hand unit as I hate buying items like this new. The exception may be the Williams as not too many come up on the used market. Is this a good sign I ask?
Can anyone give me a steer as to which scope to settle with?
Revised price. Maybe I was a little optimistic! ?
Selling this hardly used ep to fund my next BST. As new condition, used probably 4 times since purchase. With original box. Now £45 inc. first class post or £40 for cash collection in Doncaster.
