  1. Now SOLD to Kevin, Many thanks!
  2. Forgot to say, you actually drill the scope not the focuser. When I did mine I put soft tissue paper down it to stop any swarf getting onto the lens.
  3. Yes just a case of drilling 2 holes. Not sure what size now, could be 3 mm. Finder shoes cheap enough at £7 from FLO. I have a not so used focuser for sale in the for sale section if you are interested.
  4. 'SOLD' I have for sale my Skywatcher 10:1 duel speed crayford focuser which is 1 year old. It fits the following Skywatcher refractor telescopes Sky-Watcher Evostar 102/120/150, Startravel 102/120/150 and Evostar 80ED/100ED/120ED refactors. It is less than a year old, and selling due to upgrading. It is priced at £90 which will include p+p for mainland UK only. Or you can collect for £85 from Gravesend kent. You are saving £40 on new! Please note this is for focuser and the 2" to 1 1/4" reducer only! 'SOLD'
  5. Skywatcher Explorer 200p with SynScan £600

    Sorry collection only, due to size and weight.
  6. Skywatcher Explorer 200p with SynScan £600

    This is still for sale!
  7. NexRemote in Windows 10 won't install

    I have tried this several times now on my PC and Laptop. All without success. Looks like I am going to have to pay to have windows 7 installed. Not happy as I have just had windows 10 installed ( not by choice) on them both!
  8. Skywatcher Explorer 200p with SynScan £600

    Oppps sorry, suffering from a bit of jet lag. Well 13 hours behind the wheel. It is £600
  9. *REDUCED* to £500 for quick sale as new scope has arrived Im selling my Skywatcher Explorer 200p. This comes with full SynScan upgrade, auto focus and laser Collimator. It also comes with the 25mm, 10mm standard eye pieces and also a 6mm eyepieces. I bought this new 2 years ago and it has been stored and used in France on Holidays only, so very little use. I upgraded to SynScan in February but apart from using the motors to move the scope I have not used it as it should be. This scope is in very good condition with just the odd mark, mainly on the dovetail. This is collection only due to size. I could deliver to within a 50 mile radius for fuel money only. My reason for sale is Im looking at upgrading. You are welcome to view before buying! NOW £500
  10. EQ3

    I was wondering if a Stratravel 150 would be too much for the EQ3 tripod? Dont intend to use it for AP, just visual. Steve.

  14. Atair Astro 6" f9 RC

    Hi Mike, thanks for the quick response. I do have the Altair Astro webcam and My Cannon 1000D, so it would not be waisted on visual alone. Perhaps this scope would be an excuse to do more astrophotography stuff. Just enjoying the visual at the mo. I should have asked some questions at my club, but I think I was too made up with having just won the raffle lol! I was using my 102 last night. I have a lot of light pollution in my garden, but I managed the Pleiads and they looked amazing ( had to drag the mrs out to look at them as well ). That was my biggest worry when I read about the 77mm obstruction that you actually saw it. Again thanks for your quick reply, gives me a bit more to think about now before I take the plunge. Regards. Steve.
  15. Right silly question I know. I saw the Altair Astro 6" F9 RC on display at my club on Friday night and rather liked the look of it. I didnt ask any question's, but when I got home and had a look I found they can be got for a resonable price second hand ( about 50% of new price ). I have read they have a 77mm central obstuction. Now comes the silly question. Do you see this obstrruction when you look through? It will be mainly used for visual in my Graden to go along side my Startravel 102mm. Steve.
