New tripod for my 25x100 celestron binoculars

Recommended Posts

Thought this might be of interest

made binocular tripod modification to use my25x100 celestrons. The original tripod was redundent so added £30 of steel and bits and it works well. Bit of refining but may be later!

      Hello,
      I have a mint condition HEQ5 tripod for sale.  3/8" thread mounting bolt, spreader bar, 1.75" diameter legs.  Its never been used (I got it as part of an overall package, but I already have a Berlebach I use).  Still with the original polystyrene at the ends in the box it came in.  These sell for GBP109 new.  Happy to sell it for GBP70 plus postage (which in the UK via hermes should be about GBP9) or to hand over boxed in person (London).
      I'm new on SGL so don't have ratings here, but I do have 100% ratings on eBay.  Figured I would offer it on SGL first as I enjoy the community.  If no takers, then will offer it on other sites.
      Cheers,
      Vin
      ***** REDUCED to GBP 70 + p&p as I have a ZWO I need to pay for   *****

      Hi all, 
      I've decided to stay in the house tonight with the anticipation of some clear skies later on, and to hopefully get the chance of splitting a few double stars - something that I've never done before. After a while looking through some charts at my desk with a rather nice glass of red, I've come to the conclusion that Cygnus and the Northern Cross seem like a pretty good place to start. 
      My first port of call will definitely be Albireo at the foot of the Cross.. I'm excited about this one as it sounds like a beautiful view through a pair of binoculars, not to mention the easiest to find! I'll then move over to the Cygnus triple all being well and then the three doubles (Mu Cygni, 79 Cygni and 61 Cygni). 
      Now all that's left to do is await the darkness, and hope the clouds disappear! 
      Hope you're all having a great weekend.
      Cheers, Mark 😁

      On the 2nd of July I closed my curtains one night before I went to bed but, before they were shut I noticed a strange multicoloured light flickering low in the sky in the northern celestial hemisphere. I Thought to myself if that is a star it looks amazing. The next night (3rd of July) I decided to take another look at this multicoloured light which was still there, Only this time I used my binoculars, I was seeing blues, greens & reds. We have all seen stars by looking up into the sky but, I have never seen a star create multi colours before. It makes you feel excited inside and you think that no one else can see this until you tell them and share the same experience together. I believe I was looking at the Capella Star which is the brightest star in the constellation Auriga and your not kidding it is bright. I cant wait to have another look tonight to see if the multi colours are still there. I would like to have taken at picture of it but I am not setup to do that just yet as I am very new to star gazing. I wish someone here can confirm what I saw and to post a picture of it would be awesome.
