Raising the 200P Skywatched DOB on a water butt

Sign in to follow this  


Having done a few nights observing with my new 200P Skywatcher I've found its too low for comfortable observing

So got a 9x50 right angled finderscope which had made things a lot better with positioning the scope as had the Telrad finder but the focuser was still too low for comfort having to crouch down all the time so went to the local garden center on the way home and bought a water butt for £10 which has worked a treat and had a good session observing Jupiter before the clouds inevitably rolled in
