  2. TS ALt-Az Counterbalance System In excellent condition. Due to a change in scopes this is no longer needed. Have added a safety screw to the counterweight bar. SOLD - £49.95 Collected (postage to UK £5.00) The AZT6-LHALTER is superior to conventional brackets with L-profile. https://www.amazon.co.uk/TS-Optics-L-Holder-alt-azimuth-Compensation-AZT6-LHALTER/dp/B07FNH4H1V/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=AZT6-LHALTER&qid=1602938536&sr=8-1 ♦ The instrument is not placed at the side of the mount, but perfectly at the center of gravity. This increases stability and prevents the mount from tipping over. ♦ With the optional counterweight (20mm bore) you can perfectly balance your binoculars, telescope, spotting scope or telephoto lens, no matter whether an object at the horizon or high in the sky is located. ♦ The width of the instrument does not matter, even large binoculars can be attached with the AZT6-LHALTER. ♦ Pans along the horizon or up to the zenith are possible quite easily. Due to perfect balancing, you can slew even heavy instruments with your little finger. The motors of a motorized mount are hardly loaded. Among others, the AZT6-LHALTER fits to the following mounts: ♦ TS-Optics AZT6 and TSAZ5 mounts ♦ iOptron GoTo mounts Cube, MiniTower, AZ Mount ♦ Skywatcher Skytee alt-azimuth mount ♦ Skywatcher GoTo mount AZ-GTi ♦ Skywatcher AZ-EQ5 and AZ-EQ6 GoTo mounts (in alt-azimuth mode) ♦ Berlebach Castor ♦ Tele Optik Tecnica Giro and GR-Ercole ♦ Losmandy AZ8 ♦ Celestron LCM GoTo mount and telescopes Payment: PayPal (buyer pays fees) John
  3. Odly enough as I was updating the listing someone else sent a message saying they would have it. Just missed out by a minute. Feel sorry for them. John
  4. You mean you get them for free?
  5. This adapting the Starsense Explorer to other scopes is becoming a very popular passtime. Glad to see some of my ideas have been of use. John

  7. There are Orion US dealers in Europe as Orion does have a distribution warehouse in Europe so it is possible to get one from a main dealer in Europe. https://www.astroshop.eu/telescopes/orion-dobson-telescope-n-203-1200-skyquest-xt8-intelliscope-dob/p,33297
  8. And it does come with a handle.
  9. Could this be a bit of a Frankenscope? One that has been modified by someone and they have changed the designation to LX200?
  11. This new. push to system looks interesting and not too expensive. https://www.astroshop.eu/goto-kits/omegon-push-go-standalone-encoder-system/p,55768
  12. With my TS CC dew is not a problem normaly so would expect the same with the RC. Would have to be really wet for any dewing.of of the secondary. I’ve had water running off the outside of the tube but no dewing up of the mirrors. You can get heaters just for the RC though. https://www.kendrickastro.com/rcoptics.html
  13. KNOBS For helping remove the front dust cover that is, Got some M5 plastic knobs and fitted one to both the CC6 & CC8 covers.
  14. The CC8 is about 9kg with accesories and the CC6 is 5.8lg with accessories.
  15. Yes you can’t help adding a few extras that might come in handy while perusing the WDS website.
  16. A handle really helps. The ADM is expensive bit fits right onto the dovetail on the top. https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adm-misc-mounting-accessories/adm-dovetail-handle-vixen.html The WDS handle is great though and much cheaper. https://www.wdscomponents.com/en-gb/tubed-handle-front-mounted-black-wds-8517/c-404/p-920
