  6. Hi does anyone have any thoughts on the cg5-gt advanced mount.payload,tube size it will carry,performance against the eq5 or heq5. Im looking for a decent mount mainly for visual but later on maybe a bit of imaging.
  7. Decisions decisions.....cant decide on a 200pds on an eq5 goto....or a skyliner flextube 350 goto. Purely for visual. Ive had a 200p before on an eq5 goto and loved the bright wide views. Anyone had experience of a 350 dob to compare it to a 200p?
  8. i use the 8" version with starsense and yes..it really is that easy.
  9. You dont have to let it align itself.....i use manual alignment everytime....lets you chose where it points to take the images.
  10. Your issues with polar alignment still dont make goto bad for everyone else. There are lots of goto mounts that dont need polar alignment. Celestrons starsense is easy....3 minutes and ready to view all night....all objects in fov everytime. Im sorry but No one can tell me that goto is bad for visual.
  11. ive had both the 200p and a skymax 127....both goto for visual use. never had a problem with either. i dont know why anyone would say avoid goto for visual as it is a lot better than trying to follow an object manually. people have different opinions on these things but from my personal experience i wouldnt use a telescope now for visual without goto. as for the views....the 200p gives a nice bright wide view and although the view through the skymax 127 is smaller and a tad darker,with the aid of a reducer you can open the fov up slightly. i loved both of these scopes and have since moved onto an 8" sct.
  12. As im onto 2" eyepieces i have 2 baader 1"25 filters for sale. Baader UV/IR-Cut/L excellent condition boxed. £28 delivered. Baader UHC-S Filter excellent condition boxed . (Visual and photographic)£32 delivered. If anyone wants both i will sell them for £57 delivered.
  13. for sale is my skywatcher dual speed focuser for sct,s. in excellent condition. no box but will be well packaged. £80 inc postage to uk.
