    EQ6-R tripod

    Thanks - it lives outside, Will a heavy duty winter cover. Leg bolts have completely seized . I’ll give it a go & see. cheers
  2. Hi - very stupidly let the husband try to loosen a leg for me - needless to say, he’s stuffed them up. Now can’t extend / retract, the legs to get level......... ? I do have a set of HEQ5 legs, so question is - can I put EQ6-R mount, on HEQ5 legs ?? Using a 200 PDS, with guide & cameras. So not pushing the weight side too much...........but it is for imaging. thanks ?
  3. For sale. Bought this at the Astromshow a few years ago. Used a couple of times, but that’s it. Kept in the case & box. Condition is as new. Collection only please. Located Coventry West Midlands. But do travel to Lincolnshire (Coningsby) once a week, so would gladly meet up on the route. Price £1100
  4. Ohhh ?? Looks so much like my Lhasa - Tango
  5. JemC is that a Lhasa ?? looking forward to it ??
  6. Thanks - good to know ?? Yes, will be. Neither hubby or me, have skill, to make one. ?? So just waiting for a quote, to do the garden bit......
  7. It can be a bit still, by that rear dome does unscrew........
  8. Thank you for the posting & pics. Hubby will be treating to me to a pier & it's installation, for a upcoming (& rather big Birthday number ??). looking forward to it even more, now I've seen this thread ????
  9. Hi Steve, I bought a DSO ZWO a few weeks ago, still yet to use it properly though ??? How lovely, quite a special memory that ? Typhoon is my baby & especially the display. Should have his first over base tomorrow, so a brand new routine & a little excited here. An awful lot to live up to follow 2016 pilot (Mark Long - not putting flying name.....) but if you know of him, or saw the display, then you'll know how very good he was.
  10. Hello & welcome back Steve. I did the same recently & came back after a break. It's amazing how much you'll remember, once you start. Biggest change I saw, was the introduction of Polar master..........??? Clear sky's
  11. Alignment has been one of my biggest flaws. Bought it a few weeks ago & love it ! its a bit of a pain, for jumping around, when the atmosphere is a bit unstable. But a minor quibble for an awesome product ??
  12. I've just been talking to the hubby about doing a star party weekend & saw this. I've booked, for hard standing with my van ?
