Hi, I'm keen to buy a small good quality refractor primarily for astrophotography of galaxies and nebulae. I'd like to use my Pentax K1 full frame DSLR with the telescope.
Reviewing YouTube & Google the; Altair Astro 72 EDF deluxe & William Optics 71GT look like they might be good models to go for. I'd welcome the community's views on both, and any other alternatives people recommend.
I have a quick question. I am thinking (very loosely) about the possibility of a small APO for wide field views to piggyback on my CPC 1100. I am interested in recommendations. At the moment I am not planning on AP.
I can see that there is a huge range in prices and to be honest I am looking for something thats reasonably decent quality (circa £500 - having no experience with APOs I really don't have a sense as to whether thats quite enough or not really enough). I had looked at the Orion Carbon Fibre 80mm f/6 APO Triplet but its just a bit too much money.
And many thanks.
Hi Everyone, need a little help choosing the right flattener/reducer for the William Optics Zenithstar73.
I am after one that does both jobs so that rules out the dedicated Flat73 which is just a flattener!
So I was wondering if I could get away with the Flat6 0.8 reducer which does say it works on scopes 70 - 80mm f/6 but doesn't list the ZS73 in the models list or do I need to spend the extra and get the Flat6A11?
Can anyone shed some light on this have email 365 where I have seen the Flat6 but had no reply.
Thanks in advance.
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.
