  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.

  11. Alright folks I received my bag the other day. I'm pretty happy with it. It fits my tube and tripod legs comfortably. I will post a pic as soon as possible. Enjoy your holiday weekend.
  12. Alright folks I received my bag the other day. Its a really good fit. The bag fits the tube and the tripod legs. I will post a picture hopefully on Monday. Enjoy your Easter weekend.
  13. You are in the same position as me Adamski. I'm also keen on going camping and taking the scope with me.
  14. Alright Andy The bag is on it's way so as soon as I get it I will post some pics. Cheers mate.
  15. Alright Pook. Good stuff mate. Good thinking about the gel. I'm gonna look into that.
  16. Hey Chris Yeah I am sure that will do the job. I was put off buying a bag from Teleskopes. I couldn't justify spending About £80 - 90 on a carry case. I would rather be spending that on other things. Good luck finding a suitable bag.
  17. Alright Pook I purchased the bag on amazon but ebay has some too. A couple links down below to get you started. Amazon.co.uk: golf travel cover Travel Covers golf travel cover | eBay UK I hope this helps. I don't know if you live beside any golf suppliers as you can get lucky with sales etc...
