For Sale


1.  APM 100 45 dgree binoculars in original condition. Only being sold to help fund a pair of APM 120s! £2150 or sensible offer (list £2629).These are as good as it gets for observation binoculars. Fine detail and colour balanced views. At only 6.5 kilos they are easy to mount. Carry case included.

2. SOLARSCOPE SF60 H-Alpha Solar Filter (Serial No. 60458) purchased in August 2014 from SOLARSCOPE in the Isle of Man.
£2500 OR SENSIBLE OFFERS (Current price new £3,899)

This is a complete H-Alpha system comprising a tuneable single stack 0.7 Angstroms Etalon and
Blocking Filter which converts a conventional refractor into a H-Alpha telescope. This has been
used with a Williams Optics 70mm Zenithstar and a Skywatcher 80mm DS Pro and adapter plates
for either or both are included. Also included with the original setup is an adapter to cater for 1.25"
or 2" diagonals.
Performance is stunning and operation simple, the filter is in excellent condition having been used
carefully and stored with desiccant in a dry location at all times.

Due to value would prefer not to send but to meet up with any prospective purchasers so they can
have a good look at the unit. I am in Dorset and can potentially meet someone half wayish.
Selling to fund another astro project.

Please contact P2V for any other info required.
