  1. Welcome to SGL, many happy times in Kalba as an Archaeologist.
  2. I have just gone down this route. I was lucky and picked up a brand New EQ5 tripod still in its box for £50. Not used it yest but surely must be more stable.
  3. Many thanks for your replies. Ordered 2 x 1/4" 20 UNC bolts yesterday arrived this morning and they fit perfectly.
  4. Welcome to SGL, you have certainly come to the right place for help. Joining a local astronomical society is a good step you should get lots of hands on help. My first scope was a skywatcher 200p regret selling it now. Steve.
  5. Thank you, I think it may be the tripod camera thread. I will try it later.
  6. I was wondering if anyone know's the thread size on the skywatcher tube rings circled in red (130PDS). I have tried a few odd bolts (mm) l have but none fit. TIA.
  7. Many thanks for the tripod, much appreciated.
  8. Hi, I would be interested in the EQ5 tripod if you could post from. Ireland and of course subject to p+p costs (DA118FL, North Kent). Or if the scope was in Middlesex I could pick up. Regards. Steve.
  9. Does the EQ3 mount fir the EQ5 tripod. Just thinking it might be a bit more stable when I start AP. TIA
  10. Many thanks, its on my shopping list now.
  11. Thank you Peter, a new laptop is on the cards just not this side of Xmas.
