Re: EQUIPMENT FESTIVAL 2015 (29TH NOVEMBER SUNDAY)!!!

Thanks to the organisers for making this happen! It was really good to meet a lot of old faces!

Oh, and the food and drinks were superb!

Looking forward to next year's event! *Hint*

Re: EQUIPMENT FESTIVAL 2015 (29TH NOVEMBER SUNDAY)!!!

Tachyon, a pity you did not keep your stuff in dry boxes but $500 is a bargain for a Nexstar 8 as long as you know how to disassemble and clean the optics. :) Unfortunately, I only have 4 1.7m dry boxes and I can't put everything in (I still have camera stuff). So naturally I have to prioritise.......

Re: EQUIPMENT FESTIVAL 2015 (29TH NOVEMBER SUNDAY)!!!

I've been wondering when this event is going to happen! I've got stuff to clear!

Will be there with my goods - priced to sell!

Need to drive there as some of the items are quite bulky/heavy.

Cheers!

And those who have are not willing to sell... not at bargain prices anyway.

Re: A possible telescope restoration project

Wow... the scope looks bad....

I would guess the cost of the replacement optics would be quite shocking?

The standard servicing for a duplex already costs USD $410 + shipping....

Re: ** (POSSIBLE) DEAL ALERT **

Ah, Kay Heem, you should have just bought it and sell it for double the price here - there would still be takers!
