  1. Yes, my wife is expecting our first! I've lowered the price to £800 and I'm open to offers. The scope is in superb & excellent A1 condition plus it comes with many accessories. Cheers
  2. Hey folks, I've lowered the price to £800 - Cash on Collection. Cheers
  3. I've decided to sell my beloved Skywatcher Skyliner-250PX FlexTube GO-TO Parabolic Dobsonian Telescope. It's in impeccable condition, and is absolutely superb. I still have all the boxes, instructions etc. Plus it comes with an Astrozap Light Shroud and accessories! All of which are in excellent A1 condition. As some of you know already about the Skywatcher Skyliner-250PX FlexTube 254mm (10") f/1200 SynScan GO-TO Parabolic Dobsonian Telescope. Combining the power of a large optical tube, the extreme portability of the patented collapsible FlexTube design and Go-To technology, the new Skyliner FlexTube Synscan Dobsonians bring over 42,900 celestial objects right in front of your eyes, and automatically track them as they move across the night sky - its as easy as a walk in the park! The patented dual-encoder design allows you to manually move the telescope anytime and to anywhere you wish - with no need for realignment. Slewing to an object on the opposite side of the night sky no longer feels like watching a kettle boil. Simply push the button! I'm selling as we require the space (excuse the pun) for a little one! Sky-watcher Skyliner-250PX Features: Magnifications (with Eyepieces supplied): x48 & x120 Highest Practical Power (Potential): x500 Diameter of Primary Mirror: 254mm Telescope Focal Length: 1200mm (f/4.7) Eyepieces Supplied (1.25"): SP10mm & 25mm Dual-Fit 1.25"/2" Crayford Focuser Parabolic Primary Mirror 0.5mm Ultra-Thin Secondary Mirror Supports 9x50 Finderscope Direct SLR Camera Connection 3-Point tube locking system, fully retractable Alt-Azimuth Mount with Accessory Tray and Built-in Heavy-Duty Servo Motors Go-To Handset 42,900+ Object Database containing full Messier, NGC and IC catalogues Quiet operation Power Requirement: 12v DC Power Supply (Tip Positive). Sky-Watcher 17Ah Power Tank Recommended 56% more Light Gathering than 200mm Cash On Collection. The scope plus light shroud and accessories is easily worth over £1k. I am seeking £800 ONO. I'm in Surrey. If you're interested just drop me a line! via PM please. Regards, Telrad
  4. Hi, I would like to know if anyone has any experience using SkySafari's telescope control SkyWire or SkyFi? If so, could I have your opinions, as I am currently considering purchasing this accessory (not the WiFi version).

  6. hmm, I found this link (after creating this thread - oh well)...http://stargazerslounge.com/beginners-help-advice/150896-tube-rings-skymax-127-a.html
  7. Hi, Can anyone recommend an OTA that will fit onto a Synscan AZ Goto Mount? Would there be problems with the position of the dovetail? Thanks
  8. Thanks for the reply. Looks good Rik. I am considering this type of set-up as mentioned, although I have the AZ4 Goto mount. Thanks Peter, but it still can carry the 150 I presume?
  9. Hi, Do you think that it's OK to mount a SkyWatcher Explorer -150P OTA onto an AZ4 Goto mount? I am concerned about the weight any opinions or experience from members will be much appreciated..
  10. IMO a Telrad will make your life considerably easier. You will be finding objects in a fraction of the time it takes without one
