SOLD: Meade 2080 8" SCT

SOLD on 28th August 2015.

I have a Meade 2080 8" SC telescope and I'm looking for a new owner for it.

Cosmic Couple

Hi Gang,

Here is yet another gem from HST. It shows the star WR 124 and the surrounding gas ejected from it. This gas travelling at 150,000kmh gives a real sense of the explosion that created it. See if you agree here

End of an Era!

Hi Gang,

Here is a posting from the CASSINI website outlying the details of the probes last flyby of the Moon Dione. Reading this webpage made me realise that this amazing probe that has sent back so many images since it's arrival at Saturn in 2004, is closing in fast on the end of it's mission. In it's final year it will be diving through the ring planes to get some close up and personal ...
