  2. im looking for either an 8", 10" or 12" Dob...wished I had never sold my old one!
  3. is your Dob still for sale?
  4. i have attached pics. The EP's are 9mm Revelation, 15mm Revelation, 20mm Revelation, 32mm camera project lens Revelation and 25mm plossil. Comes in a metal Celestron EP case
  5. I'm selling a Celestron 6se if that's any use?
  6. I am unhappily selling my Celestron 6se with power pack and various numerous lenses etc. I have never got the proper use out of it and it is as new, apart from a small scratch on the side of the tube. It is fully flocked. I am looking for £500 for the lot. I live in South Lanarkshire so I would be able to meet at a reasonable distance if you pay the fuel costs. cheers
  7. ah now a little nob is the key to true happiness....

  9. three quarters of the way up the arm you see a wee black nob..thats what you tighten it with..make sure its properly in tho or its an expensive mistake to make lol

  11. it slides on and you tighten the nobbly bolt thing that it slides onto on the mount..try swivelling the mount head up and down incase you cant see it..no question is silly so don't worry about it
  12. the 200p was my first scope...I think its a metre and a half long..across the backseat yes..boot? hmm not sure
  13. Okay, I bought my first scope and it was this..http://www.firstlightoptics.com/dobsonians/skywatcher-skyliner-200p-dobsonian.html views were fantastic and not that heavy to be honest (if you split it), I then wanted more...more ye hear! and I wanted a GOTO so I got this...http://www.firstlightoptics.com/advanced-series-goto/celestron-c6-sgt-xlt-goto.html but could I get the hang of polar alignment? could I heck! so I decided on this http://www.firstlightoptics.com/se-series/celestron-nexstar-6se.html which is not too glitzy or glammy, not heavy as long as you set tripod up first then OTA etc and very simple to use..alignment is a breeze too..but as im sure everyone on here will tell you..each to your own....prob better trying to see one or more of them in action. You will get million different answers on this subject. Keep us up to date with what you eventually choose
