  7. Can anybody shed some light on how to connect a Skywatcher AZ EQ6-GT mount to a laptop that does not have a RS-232 port on it. New laptops do not have these on them now. Older laptops had it on as the attached photo shows but not new ones.
  8. Many thanks for your reply it is very interesting.
  9. anybody got any feedback using a "Celestron StarPointer Pro" finder scope
  10. Thanks for the info it looks better that a oblong box,
  11. A few questions on Telrads please 1. Will a Telrad replace my finders scope (I am thinking of getting a Skywatcher 9X 50 90 deg scope) 2. Is a Telrad easy to set up (any links showing this would be great) 3. Is there anything else similar to a Telrad that would give the same results. 4. Do you have to stand exactly behind a Telrad with your eye close to the viewer to get it I lined up with the object you need to view (the same way as you use a finder scope) Sorry this seems long winded any answers would be greatly appreciated. I am sill a novice in this area so simplified answers please.
  12. Regards the Skywatchers dual speed focuser it is a low profile one, will this effect eye pieces or will it need an extension tube?
  13. Lots of helpful replays coming in, the telrad seems to get good reviews but looking on First Lights web site there is a few others William Optics Multi-Reticule Finder omong others but which one is the easiest to use is it the Telrad?
