Please help (and call me stupid if you like)
  3. All, this may be a silly question but can anyone recommend a good (not too expensive) pair of night and day vision binoculars. it's basically for viewing stars/ships and night/day animals. thanking you
  4. Hi we own a Skywatcher 200P EQ5. can anyone recommend a good motorised drive kit for either tracking or co-ordinates etc. My husband saw a programme where someone had the same telescope with a motor on it and got all excited.

  8. Can anyone advise if there is a seperate compass you can buy for a Skywatcher 200P EQ5?
  9. Thank you all very much for your help. He is a major beginner and i'm sure we'll be back for more help in how to set it up properly as the manual says find the north star to set up the focus etc!!!! Puzzled!!!!. he opened his pressies this morning and was over the moon with his new lenses. Thanks again.
  10. Thank you Ronin, that sounds great i will look at them.
  11. i'm not sure really, i don't really know what else to buy him as accessories for it apart from lens's unless any of you pros can come up with any other ideas.
  12. Good afternoon to you all. Would anyone be able to help in assisting me to buy my hubby some more lens's for his Skywatcher 200p EQ5. we had a couple come with it when wi bought it but wondered if it was worth investing in a few more? Thank you
  13. :iamwithstupid:i send my sincere apologies to everyone and thank you for responding so quickly..... i have to admit i feel really stupid but didn't realise that the end bit came of the part that the eye piece slips into....... DOH!!!! all working now. i'm gonna hang my head in shame!!!!
