    Advice about telescope

    as all sayed,there are better scopes out there,for around £50 more you could get thishttps://www.firstlightoptics.com/dobsonians/skywatcher-skyliner-150p-dobsonian.html

    Focuser alignment

    Another way to check if the focuser is off,after the laser is collimated, if you can position the ota so as the focuser is pointing straight up,ie towards the sky/ceiling and then drop the laser in to the focuser with out tightning it up, gently rotate it,put a piece of paper opposite the focuser and mark where the beam hits,if the focuser is square the dot should not move off the dot.
  6. Just to throw a spanner in the works......for a grand less you could get a c11 and an neq6 pro from FLO.https://www.firstlightoptics.com/skywatcher-mounts/skywatcher-neq6-pro-synscan.htmlhttps://www.firstlightoptics.com/offers/offer_celestron-c11-xlt-optical-tube-assembly-cge-losmandy_93371.html

    That's the best i have seen yet from UK skies.
  8. You get different reviews on sct,s,i ave owned 4,and still have 1,the 12" is a cracking scope,i really regret selling it,and still dont know why i did just my opinion. Jupiter with 12".....the pic in my sig was also with this scope.
  9. This was mine with a 100mm on top,and m27 taken with it.

    What am I missing here?

    To me it's as good as any,giving the right conditions,obviously a smaller fov than newts with it being f10,but great for planetary.

    What am I missing here?

    It's not only the larger tripod,the second is an lx200, which has a much larger data base and far heavier and more robust fork mount,but the ota is the same.
