  12. Its a lot of money but it does the job well, its very easy to use and no doubt will help you get good PA, once you have good PA then in theory you should keep it all night, unless you accidently move the tripod the Star Adventurer is sitting on assuming you are using a tripod.

  14. Thanks Guys.... normally i put a slr camera on so underneath or on top didn't really matter After I set the 383l with filter wheel and balanced it all out that's when I thought of Which way up it should go underneath or on top...... ideally I would like it on the side But all the weight on one side would be very problematic to Ballance out....I'll stick it underneath i think I had just better make sure the thumb screws are damn tight... Thanks for the info most helpful Paul
  15. Hi Everyone....bit of a strange question...I have just set my newt up on the mount And I can't remember if it's ok to have my cc'd camera on top of the newt, it occurred To me that the cold in the cc'd chamber would probably frost up the front window On the camera,,,,so my question is ,,,,is it ok on top...or do I have to hang all the gear Underneath the Newtonian telescope..any advice would be greatly appreciated Many thanks Paul
  16. I hear you on the leave well alone front, the only reason I touched it was I was the fact that I was checking it over due to collimation problems when I noticed that one of the thumb screws for the vanes was loose which I thought was odd at the time so I tightened it up to around the same pressure as the other 3 I then checked to see that the secondary was in the middle which it wasn't , then I noticed that where the vane goes into the secondary holder, it was bent a bit and distorted around the fixing screws. I have had 5 newt's over the years for one reason or another have taken the secondary holder out and put back in without issues not sure if there was a small defect on the bend of the vane that fixes to the mirror holder but it needs resolving. I always take the line if its not broken ,don't try and fix it ill drop FLO a email to see if its something they can get thanks laser_jock99 Paul
  17. Do nothing with it...let it bask in its originality Paul
  18. Hi Everyone....I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction to Purchase a new spider for my SW 8 inch CF Quattro, I think I may have Damaged it by over tightening the mounting thumb screws The thin blades on one side have pulled away quite badly...
