  2. Do you need a front mounted erf on the 152 dave,?
  3. My first telescope was a 200p on an eq5 goto mount,it gave some great views and was ok for some astrophotography. My advice is buy what your budget allows,dont go throwing money at expensive gear that you might not need or use. Its a great starter scope for someone wanting to get into the hobby.
  4. Www. Rothervalleyoptics.co.uk do a nice mains power lead for said mount for around 35 gbp.
  5. Have you got them the right way round as one is longer than the other.
  6. The az eq6 pro has weight capacaties of 25kg eq mode and 25kg + 25kg az mode.
  7. Does the 2" filter screw onto the barlow and do you not use a front mounted erf?
  8. Im thinking of getting a quark after owning a few solar scopes. I have currently an apm 152 f7.9 refractor. Would a quark work on that scope,which is best for prominence and surface detail and would i need anything else as ive heard about front mounted erf,s being expensive but some people use normal 1"25 uv/ir filters on the back end.
  9. Pm on way regarding guidescope rings.
  10. The things that put me off going for the ed150 Are the fixed dewshield which makes it really long for storage and the cheap focuser. The build quality is nowhere near the apm 152 or any other 6 inch doublet and i think skywatcher know this.
