  8. Hi all, I have a sky-watcher 200 dob which i brought a few days ago (still sits in loung unused!) and was wondering (A ) does the small removerble cap on the large tube end cover serve any purpose or is it just for show? and ( when I do finally get to use it do I have to take it outside for a little while so the mirror and eye piece dont mist up? thankyou

  10. The weekend just gone I was reading like mad on here for scope recomendations I like to do my homework when it comes to buying things it looks like the sky may clear a later on fingers crossed!
  11. Had the same luck as you tonight no spotlight though! new scope and no use! regards from a cloudy rainy Norwich!
