  1. Hi guys, I have a HEQ 5 Pro Mounted with a Celestron Super C8 Telescope along with a Dual Speed 2" Crayford Focuser and want to sell but I have no idea on value. Both the scope and the mount are in very good condition and working. What would be a reasonable price to sell? Thanks in advance
  2. I thought i would purchase the nice little gizmo that is the SkyQ adapter, and it would make everything so much easier, or so i thought!!! Considering not only did it cost me £122, i also had to pay for the app at £2.99, which is a complete waste of money IMO. After plugging the adapter in, and then connecting the iPad everything was going well, until I wanted to align the telescope. After selecting the first star i noticed that the Telescope Overlay controls would not detect my finger although it would select any star on the display. So basically I could not use the iPad to align the scope.
  3. All, I'm looking at this battery to power my Celestron Slt 127 Mak with original alt/az mount. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Leisure-Battery-12v-110Ah-Lucas-LX31MF/dp/B0039TEDVQ/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top However at some point when the £££ allows i will be upgrading to the heq 5 GOTO mount so from what I've read on here that battery should sort me out for both.

  4. I've just ordered all the bits I need to build this.... Many thanks for your guide its most helpful
  5. As I'm new to this, I purchased the celestron 127 mak and haven't been disappointed yet. As the guys mentioned above looking through a loft window or anyone window that's open is still a bad idea. As I'm sure you will have heating in your house this will have a huge negative effect on your viewing not only distorting the image your view will be so restricted. Wrap up warm get your self out and you will be amazed at what's out there
