Sales and Exchanges
Many enthusiasts have bits and pieces surplus to their requirements which might be of use to others. This might include such things as objectives and eyepieces, parts of stands, objective canisters (both plastic and metal), cases, stageclips. If this site is deemed a suitable medium for such exchanges or sales then I will add a page to cater for them.

However, stands like Bactils with interchangeable body tubes may bear two completely different numbers. Where possible the number on the Magnification card inside the case should be used.
