Recommended Posts

Will there be a Bring-and-Buy sale this year?

I have some bits and pieces left over from last year, mainly LP filters and some dovetail bars.

may be on the lookout for eyepieces as I'm getting back to visual as well as imaging.

Thanks Rik.

I should be at Lucksall around 2.30 on Saturday so may be a bit late, and will be pitching.

Bother.

I’ll bring a box of bits & pieces too.

Nowt too exciting. But, it might raise some cash for the next Astro purchase.

Looks like we should have a well stocked table this year.

Modified Logitech Webcam with nosepiece.

Philips SPC880 (flashed to 900) webcam with lens and nosepiece.

Star Sharp Bahtinov mask for 6" reflector.

Homemade (not by me) usb to rj45 cable that worked with the heq5 I used to have.

Raspberry PI 3, I can't get it to do anything! (suspect card reader).

A few Arduino parts and stepper motors that I was using as auto focusers and other ideas, but gave up and bought commercial products.

Power brick (8.1Vdc output) and ACK-E2 adaptor for DSLRs (Canon D30, D60, 300D, 5D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D according to the net).

Flexible adjuster for an eq2 or similar mount. 

Celestron 2x Barlow.

Imaging Source DFK21AU618 colour camera (planetary, lunar, solar or guider).

Maybe other odds and sods if I can find anything else.

I've got a 130pds with rings and dovetail, a cheap 130p with 2" focuser and a Heritage Virtuoso 90mm Mak new and boxed.

If I can sell them at Lucksall it saves me the hassle of postage later on.

I may be interested in the Ardunio stuff.  Do you have details of the exact parts and stepper motor specs?

Orion Optics 14" dob in blue :glasses9:  Lots of upgrades, lovely scope!.  But I'll only bring it along if anyone is interested as it takes a lot of room (which is why I'm reluctantly selling it)

Seriously considering selling my  Maxvision 2" 68° 34mm. Probably only used it 3 times so it's as new. 

I'm looking to replace it for longest focal length 1.25" (26mm +)

If anyone is interested in buying or selling, shout up please ?
