Re: DIY 8"F/6 Planetary Scope from Shelves and IKEA table

Hi Good to see you have done it. I am a beginner and want to buy a dob 6 inch but find it too heavy and expensive to import here. It costs about $650 to bring in from bh for a skywatcher.

Re: Has anyone bought items from this shop?

Yes. I've purchased one Quark Daystar filter and GSO coma corrector from them. No issues.

SOLD: Meade 10" SCT F/10

Selling my under-utilized Meade 10" SCT, plucked from an LX50 EMC. The scope is in pretty good condition, except a very shallow dent in the side of the tube. Cosmetically there are some blemishes, but nothing too serious. Comes with the RACI finder but not the focuser. https://farm5.staticflickr.com...
