On Our Rotating Turret

“First appearances are certainly impressive. Cut from a single block of aircraft grade aluminium, the cage is bathed in a luscious red livery, nicely offset with the silvered nameplate and dark sextet of eyepiece turrets.”

“The turret turns very smoothly indeed; there is no resistance that might impart a motion of misalignment to the telescope itself. When it arrives at an eyepiece position, you can feel the gentlest of engagements as the mechanism reaches its next position.”

“Optically, I was completely unconscious of using anything other than a high-quality star diagonal, save for the multifaceted arsenal at my immediate disposal – with just a turn of the turret. This is a nicely engineered facility that will save time and effort that can instead be poured into the act of observation, which is what it is all about.”

On Our Rotating Turret

“The first impressions of the 6061 Turret do not disappoint[…]The engineering quality is also found below the surface where rare-earth magnets are used to hold the turret in place and a large Teflon bearing ensures smooth rotation of the turret as well unit longevity.  At the centre of the turret is a BK7 1/10th wave elliptical mirror.”

“When the time came to cease using the turret, I actually felt my heart sink the first time I went to switch eyepieces. […] This was the moment when I realised that not only did the turret really compliment my style of observing, but I actually missed it as well”

On Our Cerberus Case

“The team seem rather proud of these cases and just how robust they are as Nick (who stands over 6 feet tall) demonstrated to me at Astrofest by standing on the case and then jumping up and down on it.  […] the Cerberus Case would be an excellent choice for an eyepiece case or as a travel case for a small 6-8cm aperture scope and accessories for trips to dark distant lands as those dimensions comply with the most restrictive of hand baggage allowances.”
