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

House Martin Nest Double

House Martin Nest Double

They will readily use artificial nests and this may encourage other birds to nest nearby. These nests should be sited underneath the eaves of your house or outbuildings.

    Vixen VMC110L with Mini Porta-mount

    £486.00

    • VIXEN 39955

    This is a very light-weight 'grab and go' telescope that is ideal for astronomy. The VMC 110 optics offer an aperture over four inches in diameter with superb sharp images. Vixen's mini Porta-mount makes an ideal companion for no-fuss operation. Deploy it in seconds and enjoy stunning views of the night sky.

    You can move the telescope quickly from one area of the sky to another then use the slow-motion controls to centre and track your object.

    Supplied with two eyepieces of 25mm and 10mm focal length, it has an internal flip mirror for switching between the two observing ports. You can fit an eyepiece in both ports or an eyepiece in one and a camera at the other (with a suitable adaptor).

    8 mm to 24 mm Series 4000 Zoom Eyepiece

    8 mm to 24 mm Series 4000 Zoom Eyepiece

    £119.00

    • MEADE 07199-2

    High quality zoom eyepiece offering a 40-degree apparent field at the 24 mm setting through to 55 degrees at the 8 mm setting. Long eye relief and a folding rubber eyecup make the zoom eyepiece easy to use, even for spectacle wearers.

    Choose it as a more cost-effective solution than buying many fixed eyepieces, or just to enjoy the delight of zooming in to the optimum setting. Popular with schools and clubs as it avoids eyepiece swapping in the dark thus reducing the risk of loss or damage.

    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.

    NexStar 6 (XLT) SE

    £649.00

    • CELESTRON 11068

    This is our favourite telescope. When Lee or I talk to a school or scout group this is the telescope we instinctively reach for. It is easy to carry, quick to set up and align and has excellent optics and a large enough aperture to show all types of objects.

    Our package includes the telescope, sturdy field tripod, Nexstar computer control and a high-quality eyepiece chosen to give the best balance between magnification and field of view. It is ideal for anyone wanting a serious but portable telescope.

    One of the best telescopes on the market

    All you need in addition is batteries to start your night-time adventure. These can be ordinary AA dry cells but we recommend a Celestron power tank as it works out cheaper in the long run and is very convenient. We use them all the time.
