  1. Hi, Is this still available and where would collection be from please? Ian
  2. Hi Leon, Basingstoke Astronomical Society have a practical meeting this Thursday from 7:00pm Ian
  3. Hi, Just a t2, 2” nosepiece I think https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/baader-2-t-2-nosepiece-and-camera-adapter.html ian
  4. I have a Primaluce electric focuser and think it’s great. One thing I would like is a hand control unit so when doing visual I don’t need a pc Ian
  5. Hi Peter, Sorted, it says on the ascom site that the hand controllers must be 3.38 or later, they were version 3. something, anyway updated the firmware and all see ok now. Thanks Ian
  6. Hi, I have been doing this for years but now I have a problem. I connect my EQ6 Pro (or HEQ5 or EQ5Pro)via the handset using ascom, now i get the message (in Cartes Du Ceil) this may not work using a version 2 handset, upgrade to Version 3 or 4. My handsets ( I have a few) are all version 3.2** Cant sync, can slew from the software. Any ideas? Thanks in advance Ian
  7. Might there be fuse that has blown. A while ago my LX200 stopped working the it was an internal fuse Ian
  8. I send him my 750d last week Wednesday, he modded it and it was delivered back this Tuesday. Fab service Ian
  9. Hi, Once again thanks for your thoughts. I decided to get a new motor control box, took a while as Optical Vision were out of stock but it has arrived. Had a play last night and it worked first time. Kind regards Ian
  10. I would think that you are not actually selecting Polaris as the stars should match no matter where you are. Ian
  11. Hi Dave, I tried connecting via the hand set. Connect & worked fine in Cartes Du Ceil but in phd2 I got the error message something like 'mount doesn't support pulse guiding' Thanks Anyway Ian
  12. Hi, So using phd2 and selecting manual guide there is definitely longer motor noise/movement when nudging west that any other direction, this is with no scope or weight attached and the guide cam on the table. Think new motherboard is the solution. Once again thanks Ian
