Ultrascope HWE telescope

I'm trying to find an "Ultrascope" telescope, as made and sold by the firm H W English, in I think, the 1970/80s.

It was a small aperture refractor, with a Barr & Stroud 48mm air-spaced OG.

There were three versions of the telescope: "Astro", "Zoom", and "Prism"

All versions had the Barr & Stroud OG, and were marked with the "HWE" lenses-and-prisms logo.

If anyone has one of these scopes, I'll be glad to hear ...

Hi! I've listed the lot (all in my signature bar the fags n wine - theyve gone!) All on ebay.
It's all sched to start fri 14th Jan from 8pm.
Everything from the scope to the plossls to AE solar filter, the lot.

Many thanks all. ...

Strathspey problem

Last xmas my wife ordered a pair of 10 x 50 marine binoculars for me from Strathspey. Unfortunately a pair of 7 x 50 arrived. Despite contacting the seller many times, I'm still waiting for the 7 x 50's that were ordered. The 7x 50's I received are good quality - its just that its not what was ordered.

Anyone else have this problem and what can i do about it?
