Scope Cover

Scope Cover

£29.99

  • Green Witch

This Premium Woven Polyester Telescope Cover is specially treated to protect against snow, frost, rain, pollution and birds. What's more, it is ultra violet-stabilised to protect against the harmful effects of sunlight and its Weather-GardT protection means it is 100% waterproof.

Integral ventilation flaps make it especially suitable for protecting a telescope. Solid brass eyelets and quality tie-cords are provided, and every cover comes complete with a durable zip-up storage bag.

Use the cover to protect your telescope while you wait for the weather to change or when you don't want to take it in until the next day. Equally useful as a dust cover for indoor storage.

The top picture shows it on an 8-inch Dobsonian but it is big enough to cover a 12-inch SCT such as an LX200.

The bottom picture shows it protecting a C11 OTA mounted on an EQ6. Guess where it is then click the 'more' button to see if you are right.

Actual dimensions 64cmx64cmx1.2m

Astrolabe 200mm Dia

Astrolabe 200mm Dia

£159.00

  • ANTIQUUS

This 8-inch diameter astrolabe is the one featured in Tom Wujec's video above. If you haven't watched the video yet you might like to do so as it shows its size and quality far better than a single image can do.

This really is a beautiful reproduction of an ancient instrument, the first personal computer. Geoffrey Chaucer wrote the first technical manual in the english language in 1391 describing how to use it. You can follow in his famous footsteps as you learn to use this fully working model which carries the date 1602 on the reverse side.

It looks impressive on display and is sure to excite interest. Besides their use for determining astronomical events astrolabes were used as teaching tools in the late Middle Ages.

A lovely present for anyone who appreciates the skill of our ancesters and who likes to find out how things work.

Solid metal with antique brass finish. Height 250mm, diameter 200mm, thickness 12mm

    Celestron Starsense Accessory

    Celestron Starsense Accessory

    £369.00

    Celestron 94005

    The revolutionary technology in the award-winning SkyProdigy telescope is now available for almost every Celestron computerized telescope.

    Before StarSense, using a computerized telescope required a lengthy alignment process of finding and centering at least two bright stars in the telescope’s eyepiece. But StarSense automatically aligns itself, no user input needed. With StarSense, you become an instant astronomer—even if you’ve never used a telescope before.

    StarSense is not only compatible with all of Celestron’s current computerized telescope models, but backwards compatible with many older models as well. (See compatibility list below.)

    The StarSense Accessory includes a small digital camera that attaches to the telescope’s optical tube, along with a specialized hand controller. Just set up the accessory, push the Align button on the hand controller, and StarSense starts capturing and comparing images of the night sky against its internal database of 40,000 celestial objects. In about three minutes, StarSense will gather enough information to triangulate its position and align itself. Then, press the Sky Tour button: StarSense will automatically slew to all the best stars, planets, galaxies, and more based on your exact time and location.

    Even the most advanced telescope users will love using the affordable StarSense Accessory. StarSense replaces expensive software used for Advanced Mount Modeling, providing superior pointing accuracy from horizon to horizon. Users can add as many calibration stars as desired to give their telescope mount a new level of accuracy.

    StarSense Accessory General Features

    • Enables automatic alignment of your Celestron computerized telescope*.
    • No need to identify or locate any star in the sky – StarSense will automatically align your telescope, so you can begin observing in minutes.
    • Only accessory available that will enable automatic GoTo alignment.
    • Aligns in 3 minutes or less.
    • Provides advanced mount modeling – the ability to align on numerous stars throughout the sky for extremely precise goto pointing accuracy.
    • StarSense hand controller included.
