  1. Celestron StarSense Accessory for SkyWatcher Mounts New & unused - only taken out of box to look at once. I bought for aligning assistance, but haven’t got around to using. Due to family challenges, looking at selling some kit. Can post or distanced safe collection (if local to Coventry). £250 (incl tracking postage - uk only please)
  2. Just searching myself for Astro camping / van. i stopped at Hares leap near Louth. Not sure on the official Bortle, but it’s visible milky way. they have 5 hard standing pitches, with grass inbetween. Each has power hook up. Only £15 per night. But need to take your own toilet though. i did ask about Astro nights, as there is a single bright lamp At the entrance, but with prior agreement, it can be turned off.......

  9. 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 ?

  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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 ??
  19. 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 ?
