skywatcher should sell a goto retro fit kit for dobs i would not mind one my self
Thanks for the kind comments folks and sorry I didn't see your messages till now. The legs are adjustable and they were made for me by a friend with welding kit. Unfortunately he no longer has the welder.
The "Goto" was added from a Skywatcher AZ GOTO mount that I purchased for £190. The handsets from both scopes were interchangeable, so it left me with a tracking AZ mount and handset to offset the expense.
I prefer right angle finders and the one displayed is an Orion 9x50 Correct image version. With the "goto" though it hardly gets used. The shroud was ordered through Harrisons.
On a clear night the views of M42 in a 12mm hyperion are awesome at our dark site :)

Hi brant! Where you get the elasticated cap for the secondary mirror from?
Did you make it?
Hi Rez - it came with the scope - it reminds me of a showercap (which of course would do the job) :)
Thanks brandt :)
I've ordered the Flex 250px Auto, should be here next week..
I hope it comes with a black shower-cap too! It was your pic and advice that made me order the scope. Many Thanks brandt!
Congrats Rez - you won't be disappointed with the views I guarantee. Do let me know how you get on with it - if I can be any help just ask :)
