  1. celestron cpc 800

    Thanks for your replies. PeterCPC It says Aux 1 and Aux 2. Can I run my Altair GPCAM cooling fan off of one of these ports?
  2. Any one know what type of plug fits the socket with arrows pointing to it. I am after one that fits in there with a female USB the other end. TIA.
  3. Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to get a connector that goes from either the Aux 1 or 2 ports on my 800 CPC to fit a USB type plug?
  4. Reduced again to £480. Must go getting moaned at!!!!
  5. Now SOLD to Kevin, Many thanks!
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. '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'
  9. Sorry collection only, due to size and weight.
  10. 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!
  11. Oppps sorry, suffering from a bit of jet lag. Well 13 hours behind the wheel. It is £600
  12. *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
  13. 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.
