  1. Thanks Michael. Cheers Jake. Here is the image that was overlayed onto the satellite data. Exactly Jake, the height data gives a whole new perspective doesn't it http://www.pbase.com/neilphillips/image/164738055
  2. Cheers John glad you enjoyed it . Cheers for the likes guys.
  3. Been a long while since I posted on here. Thought I would share a 3d Animation. Taken from a image acquired with SW 300p Newt and ZWO 290 Camera. Many thanks to Alain Paillou for the 3 d processing. moon.zip
  4. Sorry I cant help. FLO got it direct from gunner as far as I am aware. Best pm them. Hope that helps
  5. LOL no worries, one trip to hell. Many trips to the heavens
  6. Sorry guys I thought I put it. ive spent about £1100 I was asking £750. So a saving of around £350. Could get a scope with that.
  7. Cheers. A part of me doesn't want to see it go. Been thinking about it for ages, just sitting on the idea.
  8. Don't forget the modification and the power supply. And unused lynx power cable. More like £1100 or more. Are you bartering ?
  9. SOLD Sorry to see this go, But I am giving up. To many health and financial issues. I had two syntreks and this. Which was probably the best one I had of the three. Rock solid mount. No play. Great tracking. All my recent images of the moon have been taken with it. Comes with a brand new Lynx astro power lead. And SW counter weights. Synscan goto hand controller I will throw in my old power supply. I also did the gunner modification. Which is a much stronger internal altitude block. I Personally did this myself. After the gunner block was installed by FLO. The mount now works better than any new standard NEQ6 pro ever could. In time you will get trouble with the standard, unmodified mounts. Not this, its future proof. A better mount £350 cheaper than new. Collection only from Essex. No offers I doubt you will get better than this. No dings or marks its mint
  10. No problem I used 4 it does the trick. actually I found with the big sw rings the whole weight of the setup was surprisingly firm and stable. I kept the scope indoors all the time. so this was setup by me alone each time I imaged, and I am not exactly strong. So its doable. wouldn't want to try the 14 mind. Neither scope nor the mount that would be a lot more difficult
  11. Sky watcher rings are fine. with a heavy duty dovetail will work.
