  4. I'm looking to get hold of a used celestron 8 se mount , I've tried e-bay and astrobuysell but can't find one. Is there anywhere else I can look for one or similar to fit my c8 ota. Thanks Rich
  5. Thanks Scotty, a very handy link for the beginner
  6. Thanks for the pointers Starguest I'll have a little play again tonight and see how I get on. R.e. the the Dec control, yes the shaft goes all the way through giving you two end. Should I have a knob to go on each of them ?
  7. Hi all, I reieved my sparkling new SW200p and Eq5 mount yesterday I have it all built up and ready to rock but have a few questions. It says in the instructions to balance the scope at 20-30 degrees but it won't go below 30 ?? I have 3 places to put the push on knob/adjusters but only 2 knobs, is this right ? The controls are on the opposite side to the eyepiece, have I done something wrong ? Thanks Rich

    Hi and welcome to the forum. I've been led to believe that the skywatcher goto's are one of the easier to use so its probably something as simple as the members have mentioned already, date input and/or leveling. Good luck and don't forget to let us all know how you get on
