  1. Terrible to hear. The worse part is, anyone who would do something like that wouldn't have a clue as to what they were taking. So sorry.
  2. It took me a while to get up and running with my Skymax 127 but, after putting in the work to learn how to properly use a decent scope, I saw Jupiter and 3 moons. I could even make out cloud bands. Truly amazing and I can't wait to discover more.
  3. I think i solved my own question. Would something like this be used to regulate power (and provide leads) between the power pack and the mount? Universal 3A DC Power Supply : InCar Power Adaptors : Maplin
  4. Hiya Newt. you reckon this is suitable? Universal 3A DC Power Supply : InCar Power Adaptors : Maplin
  5. Thanks, AstroBaby! you probably saved me some pain. I have a SupaTrak. I hope I can impose and ask you to describe in detail what iIneed to do to make it work. Basically, my current power pack is one of the small ones that I put batteries in. I can romove the lead from the pack and basically them I have 2 wires.
  6. Hi Supercharged, Can I ask how you connected the 3 in 1 to your mount? Do you just take both ends of the lead that were attached to the AA battery pack and connect them to the positive clamp on the 3 in 1? Sorry if this is a bit of a daft question but I am getting one this week endand still don't have a clue how I would connect it.
  7. Hi all, I just got my telescope and, being keen, I've already gone through 8 batteries. Going to maplins and picking up the following: 3in1 Portable Jumpstarter : InCar Battery Chargers and Compressors : Maplin Is this what you are discussing? Also how do you properly hook it up?
