  7. COMPLETED - SW NEQ6 PRO Mount NOW SOLD

    Cheers. A part of me doesn't want to see it go. Been thinking about it for ages, just sitting on the idea.
  8. COMPLETED - SW NEQ6 PRO Mount NOW SOLD

    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. COMPLETED - SW 12" Newtonian F5 NOW SOLD

    Replied NOW SOLD
  11. COMPLETED - SW 12" Newtonian F5 NOW SOLD

    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

    Sky watcher rings are fine. with a heavy duty dovetail will work.
  13. COMPLETED - SW 12" Newtonian F5 NOW SOLD

    Hi I did take some. But unsure where. What was you interested in. The Neq6 does hold it and it balances well. Though of course. A bigger mount would be better. But at a push it is do able as can be seen from the pictures it took on this setup. On a budget, its a good option. for sure. Which is why I did it.
  14. Selling my Sky watcher 300p Newtonian. As I need the dosh. It is in great condition, just a bit of dust and such. Infact I have been told by someone who gets to see a lot of these that I got lucky with the optics. It has produced some great images. My lunar images seemed to surpass my Orion 1/10th wave 10 inch Newtonian. Collimation wise it lines up like a dream. Which is handy at F5 Looking for at least £300, its hit and miss with these scopes. and clearly these optics are good. The latest 300p is £629 Collection from Essex All images taken by this scope on a NEQ6 mount
  15. 180 mm Mak or 8 inch SCT EDGE on planets

    Lovely scopes agreed but not cheap. I would love to image with a very large apo for sure. I took my lunar images with a 300 quid scope 12 newt. If the guy ever wanted to image and doesn't have the dosh a 10 newt is a good option. But now I am changing the question a bit. I am biased after using two meade f15 maks for years I sold it and got another after I missed it lol. Sorry guys Mak all the way for me
