PST CaK for sale

Post by SolarJohn » Wed Dec 11, 2013 1:00 am

PST CaK for sale on CN Classifieds for $500US. It's not mine, but I know many on this forum are looking for one, especially at this price, so I thought that I'd let you know.

I know! I have PM'ed him on Cloudy Nights when only 7 people had read it but not had a reply yet, I'm so disappointed. Stop advertising it to everyone, I want it :)

Alexandra

PS The only problem is it say CONUS on it, I had to look that up on the internet and I have a feeling he is ignoring me because he doesn't want to sell to me :( (crying at this point)

You need someone CONUS who will accept delivery on your behalf and then ship onto you :whistle:

I agree Mark! Well, I replied only 30 minutes after he posted it, with 6 previous viewers before me. It now says sales pending and he never even bothered to contact me. He either didn't want discuss what we could have done or the 6 other viewers got there before me. I couldn't have been any quicker, I am gutted.

Then to top the day off, I have been looking forward to Dr Lucie Green's talk on the Sun tonight for 2 months. It took me nearly 2 hrs to get out of Manchester (stupid traffic), I was in a panic when I got home only to find out the talk was cancelled. I nearly burst into tears at that point.

I am in a very sorry mood.

:(

You should really try and see if you can unscrew the gold tube from your CaK PST to get access to the magic filter, this unscrews and then with an appropriate blocker and your wedge you would have full CaK operations on the TEC. It's all easily reversible.

We'll make a modder out of you yet :evil:

Don't give her any ideas about taking the PST CAK to bits, that's the main scope I am allowed to use as it nice and simple like the standard PST. I've only been given a free go once and I'm looking for another try some day.

Any butchering of hardware is to be done with other equipment.
Negative comments welcome to aid learning, as competing with Alexandra on her old borrowed equipment means I will always be 3 steps behind.

Hey, Hey Hey Hubby

that is not the deal we agreed on that you were allowed to enter that forum :lol:

Please just simply turn over the scope to the mod section ;)

:lol: I'm not allowed to touch that scope, it's his baby now :) and he's quite protective ;) he said he was going to hide the screwdrivers, but since I don't know where they are anyway it's probably pointless :)
