  1. Drunk Coler, could you keep me posted on this please. I have just bought the synscan pro kit for my EQ3, but would really like the AZ Gti setup for portability. As for power tank I use a jump starter. I had one from eurocarparts, served me well until I let someone jump start their car and after that it would not charge. I think they may have put the terminals on the wrong way round. I got another off of eBay for £37 same as the other one but only 600 amp as opposed to 900. Both of which seem to do a good job. Far cheaper than the specific power packs that are being sold. Steve.
  2. Hi l will Defoe have it. Can you pm me your PayPal account please. Regards. Steve.
  3. 2nd dabs on the 10mm if it dont sell. I have literally just got the 21mm, sod's law.
  4. 28mm & 9mm now sold. Reduced to £30 inc p+p to UK mainland. I have for sale the SW LET 28mm and 9mm eyepieces. I am upgrading to 2" eyepieces as I seem to struggle with 1.25" eyepieces. I have 2 28mm so one is surplice to requirements. They are both in good condition, the 28mm gives great views of the Orion Nebula and the Pleiades in my ST102 scope. I have the original box for the 28mm, but the 9mm only came in a jiffy bag. Thanks for looking I am looking to sell them both together so £30 for the 2 SW LET's inc p+p UK mainland only, or you can pick up if you prefer. Paypal only. I also have a Vixen NLV 12mm eyepiece. £30 inc p+p UK mainland and pay pal only. I have the original box but it is in France. I would send it to buyer at no cost when I get it back to UK.
  5. Hi Cosmic Geoff thanks for your reply, I already have the 2" diagonal, 2" visual back and a SW startravel 102 and 130pds . I also have the SW LET 28mm 2" which I find comfortable to use. To be honest I seem to struggle looking through the 1.25" eyepieces I have. I am really after a better quality 2" than the SW 28mm LET.
  6. I was wondering what 2" eyepieces people are using on their CPC 800's. I am looking at getting one or perhaps two in the near future, one for planetary and one for DSO's. I wear glasses so would need long eye relief. Any advice as long as it is friendly would be appreciated.
  7. Thank you George I will certainly bear that in mind Thank you Hadyn, sorry to be a pain but do you have a picture of your set up. I have the Canon 1000D, but will probably use an Altair GPCAM as and when funds allow. Forgot to say I would probably use it on the tripod off of my EQ3 for extra stability.
  8. I was wondering if anyone has used a Skywatcher 130PDS on the AZ GTI mount?
  9. Thank you for your replies. I have got Stellarium on my laptop now. £2.19 is about to be spent lol.
  10. I have Stellarium on my PC and hopefully will be able to put it on my laptop ( graphics card problem) soon. I had it on my last phone but l have gone to instal it on my new phone and it says you have to pay for app. Only only a few pounds by was wondering if this is right as l thought Stellarium was free.
  11. Well I don't know what happened there. Just installed my printer on the laptop which was a bit of a struggle and thought I would try to re install Stellarium. Installed and working fine. It does say (No OpenGL2) now, so perhaps it has installed another version? Not very good with this computermebob stuff lol! Anyway thanks for all your help, much appreciated.
  12. Looks like I may just have the generic graphic card. O well I will get him to install a new graphics card as well. Steve.
  13. I give up now lol! Just got it up and running now it is asking for OpenGL again. My PC died this morning critical error, so I will ask the guy who does my repairs to upgrade the drivers on my laptop so I get stellarium. Anyway thanks for all your help. Steve
  14. Hi Martin, I have already done this. My laptop has only recently had Windows 10 installed and it was working fine. Then I had a glich on the puter this morning and now it wont open. I have downloaded Stellarium twice now.
