  1. I wouldnt go through the hassle of returning it, just get an accure level and use that.........
  2. Had the same issue with my CEM120, The bubble levels are often inaccurate, ive a friend that has it on there Skywatcher, and thats miles out. All I did was use another bubble level on a flat part of the mount, I may be at an advantage though as its a permanent set up in the obsy, so I only had to do it once.......
  3. Yeah thats what ive come to realise.........thanks all for your response.
  4. Anyone knowledgeable on ioptrons cem 120 mount? Recently brought one.... Doing well but I can't seem to find a setting on the handcontroller or software where I can slow the slewing rates down (as its v noisy don't want complaints), so that's not the guiding rates... Or manual moving, just the go-to..... Parking..... And pointing to zero. I can slow the speeds on all other settings though....

  9. Hi Everyone, I have a losmandy G11 with gemini system, but its the older version, and doesn't have a USB on its panel. However I have this (see pics) im pretty sure it was from when I brought the mount second hand a few yrs ago from a fellow member (cant remember name...ect), in a nutshell, can someone tell me what its used for? Im guessing its to connect the mount to the computer, and maybe running software like Cartes du-ciel?? Also can it be used for updating the firmware...ect……….if someone can give me an idea of its uses it would be much appreciated.

  11. You need a 2 inch adapter piece that screws into the body of your 450D, I will post a link to what I recon you need. The coma corrector goes into the 2 inch focuser on your scope then the 2 inch adapter goes into that. Hopefully you should be able to reach focus. Dependant on the scope you may not need a coma corrector, especially if you crop the pic post processing.
