Good evening i have some items my late father in law left.
I am looking at selling to arrange things for a wake so ive been given your group info to see if anyone is interested.

The pictures dont tell a great story but i know the big scope is not complete.
It needs a keypad ? And a lead !?
A few eye lenses were beneath the polystyrene 3 in total.
I beleive these were for the longer scope.

If you have any interest or knows anyone that does please let me know my thanks for taking time to read this and best regards.

Whirlpool Galaxy

andy@...
 

Hi all,
As Wednesday was so clear I got my telescope out and thought I would look at some galaxies I was very underwhelmed as pointing my foot mount st different DSO's didn't show me anything. I ended up pointing at at the whirlpool galaxy which I couldn't see so I attached my Nikon and took a 25 second exposure. I was delighted to see the galaxy appear faintly within the shot so I took 50 more shots and managed to get this picture. What do you think of it. Now I know it works I will hopefully get more data and expand on it.
