  1. Fantastic image. Look forward to seeing the coloured version .
  2. Thanks Putaendo for taking the time to help me. Appreciated.
  3. Hi there I am thinking about buying a new telescope to replace my Skywatcher explorer 150pl. As much as I like my telescope it's not exactly the most portable. The telescope I have been looking at is the Skywatcher evostar apo ed 80mm. My problem is that with money restraints I will not be able to purchase a new mount in the near future. Would my eq 3-2 be an adequate mount for the evostar until I can afford to buy a Heq5 mount? I do not think the eq 3-2 is a particularly good mount for the 150pl so I am hoping it won't be worse. Thanks David
  4. Amazing images Dave. A joy to look at.
  5. Hi there Can anyone tell me where I can purchase Latitude Adjustment T- Bolts for my EQ3-2 mount Thanks
  6. Thanks John. I've seen your post before ( great job by the way ). I'm not known for my technical abilities so I am a bit sceptical about drilling my scope. I was hoping for an easier solution. Hopefully, if I do pluck up the courage and I follow your instructions, I will get what I want. Did you notiuce a significant difference when you replaced your focuser?
  7. Hi Can I get a dual speed focuser on my 150pl without any major modifications?
  8. I posted a while back that I had purchased a golf bag cover for my telescope. I'm pretty happy with it considering it was under £20.
  9. Hey there. Sorry about the delay. Very hectic time. A couple pics of my bag I purchased. Fits tube and tripod legs very well. I am pretty happy with it.
