  2. Hi Trevor l use an ironing board chair. You can pick them up for under £30. Had mine about 4 years now does the job for me.
  3. Just pressed the button on a Telrad from FLO for my Nexstar 6SE.
  4. Focus knob has just arrived and fits perfectly. Thank you so much Trevor.
  5. Sorry Trevor looks like bit of finger blight with my last post. lt should say 'Wow thats great let me know what l owe you'. S
  6. Does anyone do the 3D printed fine focus knob for the Nexstar 6SE as l have just bought one as retirement pressie to myself.
  7. l have for sale my 130PDS and EQ3PRO. lt has had very little use since l bought it in December 2018 (no AP). lt is overall in VGC apart from one small indentation on the OTA. l honestly do not know how this happened but as far as l know it does not affect the performance. Also it has the normal marks on the dovetail. The OTA has its own aluminium flight case which is included in the price it also has the skywatcher auto focus attached. The EQ3-2 had the pro kit fitted by me and l have only used it to move the scope and have not used the SynScan go to at all. To be honest l found it a bit daunting. It also comes with the original 28mm eyepiece, a 50mm SV-Bony finder scope (no eyepiece) and the Polar illuminator. l am looking for £575 firm. Collection only from DA11 Gravesend. l have a few more pictures if you would like but unable to load them up here. Any questions feel free to ask and l will do my best to answer (l'm not very techy).

  8. Love my little ST102, views of M42 and M45 are beautiful through it. l have had it about 7 years now and bought it second hand for £40. l love it so much l have instructed my family when the time comes to have my ashes put in it so l can always look to the stars lol.
  9. Thank you Julian much appreciated
  10. Could some kind person let me know what size bolts theses are on my SW 130pds Crayford please.
  11. Welcome from West Kent.
  12. Hi and a warm welcome from North Kent.
  13. Yes. 130 PDS in now all nice and snug along with its 50mm guide scope.
  14. Firstly welcome to SGL. Have you looked on eBay? l bought a flight case yesterday 850x270x295 for my SW 130PDS cost £52.50 which l thought reasonable. Obviously you would have to look for a size similar to the one you need. l have the eBay flight cases for all my scopes except my Celestron 800 CPC but will probably get one for that as well. Steve.
  15. We are on the edge of a small well spread out village, no overhead power lines so hopefully it will be Ok. l think there are only 5 or 6 street lamps as well so nice and dark.
  16. Thank you fifeskies much appreciated. l had bought the Cat5E cable but have not used it yet. Still it was cheap enough. l will get the Cat6 cable now. Expensive hobby this LOL!
