  1. Hi Guys Would anyone know the thread size for the Meade Field Tripod Locking Knobs which lock each adjustable tripod leg ? thanks Graham
  2. Hi Guys As the title says , does anyone know what the Thread size of central hole in a Meade Standard Field Tripod Hub would be ? I foolishly let the threaded rod with handwheel go when i sold the Meade Super Wedge. thanks Graham
  3. Having sold a Meade Super Wedge , i need to acquire the securing threaded rod with handwheel on one end to enable me to attach and secure the eyepiece tray on my Meade standard field tripod. Would anyone know where i could buy one from or would anyone have one they no longer need ? cheers Graham
  4. I have found some Teflon grease and have coated the 3 pads and the circumference of the dob base that the pads travel over and it seems to have helped no end. Graham
  5. Hi Guys I have just bought a Skyliner 200P . The dob base is not very free moving even when the central nut is sufficiently loosened. Anyone got any ideas/mods that i can perform to free up the rotary movement of the base? cheers Graham
  6. Hi Guys Have just completed my 3rd dewshield (this one for my Skymax 150 Pro). The previuous 2 have been for my: 250PX Newt and my Skywatcher 80ED Pro. Made from Lonsdale Fitness Mat (Sports Direct) and embroidery hoops. If i say so myself they make a rather professional looking job . Graham
  7. Hi Guys What is the basic difference between an SCT and a Maksutov ? Is one type superior to the other ? The Maks appear to be more expensive "inch for inch" Graham
  8. Hi Guys Would anyone be able to supply me with the "all up" weight of the Skywatcher Skymax 150 Pro (including 2" diagonal and 9 X 50 Finderscope). thanks Graham
  9. Hi Guys What is the best method to remove a Telrad Base from a telescope OTA without damaging the OTA paintwork? Graham
