  5. guys, I have a spherical 8" f4 mirror that needs refiguring, Im more looking for someone who has a need of my skills as a swap, the comercial price Ive been quoted seems fair but is outside my budget, so.... anyone need the services of a mechanic (qualified), hydraulics/pneumatics guru, spray painter (owned a shop for a while) or even house maintenance send me a message and Ill see if we can work something out (I have a second 8" mirror that can be had as part trade if its of use) Rogern:smile:
  6. WTB 1.25 Focuser for a 4.5" Reflector

    Ray, It uses the little 1' (or thereabout) ones, Roger gave up and bought one from BINTEL, paid yesterday here today... Welcome to the site mate. I know this may sound like a silly question, but what size eyepieces does your current focuser use? Cheers Ray
  7. Hi all, Looking to upgrade a 1" to a 1.25" focuser, something with fine gearing that will go on a 4.5" reflector, used prefered, anyone have something lying about? thanks Roger NSW
