  2. hi every1 just need some advice on some eps what would be the best 1s to get i can either afford 2 bst eps i have a sw 200p 0n a eq5 with the standard 10mm and 25mm or buy the revulation kit for £125 but will the ep be just as good as the bst thanks for u help in advance
  3. hi mate i no its just abit more but i was looking at the 127 from flo and then looked at the 200p eq5 from flo it was £377 but was alot bigger mirror and better mount as money was not going in to the sync mount which i have heard alot of problems with the mount not setting up so u spend more time getting it working the learning ur way around the sky so its abit more again but i think its worth it, but bear in mind its abig scope but it has to be as its 8" and not 5" what do u want to look at in the sky.
