    Scope upgrade advice

    So basically the HEQ5 looks better, is more sturdy, has better motors! Definately the better mount for imaging, almost a mount for life i guess!!

    Scope upgrade advice

    Gaz in your honest opinion is it worth paying the extra money for the Skywatcher (HEQ5 PRO) at £300 more!! Is the mount that much better?
  7. I am currently thinking of upgrading my setup and am torn between two options at the moment:- 1. A celestron C8NGT http://www.firstlightoptics.com/proddetail.php?prod=C8nGT 2. Or a skywatcher 200P http://www.firstlightoptics.com/proddetail.php?prod=200heq5 There are several reasons for upgrading, The main one being to eventually get into some imaging!! (aswell as wanting to move onto an equatorial mount, and more aperture of course!) The main thing that concerns me is the mount really, as i have heard good rep's on both OTA's! I would like goto but am prepared to go without for now if need be but is the price indicative of the quality of the mount??? And would either of the two be good for DSO imaging? Also would the CG5 also take a small refractor aswel as the newt?? I have heard some negative rep's on the CG5 but none on the HEQ5!! Any help or opinions please!! Thanks Andrew

    Clear skies for two days!!

    Unfortunately the lights are toughened!! Have tried many things:- 1. I tried two slingshots, A black widow and a Diablo pro!! 2. Tried a 2.2 cal air rifle! 3. And even tried asking them to change the angle of the light, the response was not printable! I really need to move to the middle of the country somewhere!!
