  1. It's just getting it up and down stairs when you wish to take it out. It's not massive, it's just too big for where I live. (If there was a lift it would be great) So it's for sale - http://stargazerslounge.com/sale/81099-skywatcher-explorer-200p-eq5-package.html#post1230132
  2. It's a great looking (no so little telescope) and thanks for all the help on this. I got Skywatcher Explorer 200P EQ5 in the end, have had it over a month now and not even had it outside, in fact just taken it all out of the box once. I think its the size, I need something smaller.
  3. Thank you all for the help. What else would I need to take some photos. I have a 450D and I'm going for the 200p, so what else do I need to attach my camera to this Skywatcher Explorer 200P EQ5 Scope. Thanks!
  4. wow thats very cool. It must just be so enjoyable knowing you created that photo.
  5. Hi and thanks for the info. Do any of you have sample photos of some photos taken with the Skywatcher Explorer 200P EQ5 and canon 350 to 450d's or know where I can find some? Would be great to see some of what I MIGHT/SHOULD! be able to take. thank you both.
  6. I was reading about the scopes on offer (on here) and I had made up my mind on the Skywatcher Explorer 200P EQ5 This one from here - http://firstlightoptics.com/proddetail.php?prod=200eq5 But then I was talking to a friend on the phone last night and he said not to go for it (I was all ready!!) He said go for the Skywatcher Skyliner 200P Dobsonian This one here - http://firstlightoptics.com/proddetail.php?prod=dobsky200 I was all ready and now I've been put off again. So I'm back to ask...no beg you all for your thoughts. I just need a little push in the right direction. I'm going to be using it for looking at planets, hopefully some DS things and I already have a 450D (and I will try taking some photos!) Please push me!
  7. Any peice of working machine a man owns is "female" Take my car, she's called Deloris and I drive her hard
  8. Thanks for the reply's guys. Viking: The ISS with the camera alone? Really I never know that! legion48: Yes I think the tracking will be hard (well for me anyway) I have two questions, If I may. If I was to buy one extra Eyepiece with above scope, what should I go for? And Would I need anything extra to attach my 450D to the scope in order to take photos?
  9. I have spent the last few days reading this forum, as I needed some questions answered, but I did not just want to rush in with a load of questions! So I have been reading your threads and posts to gage a feeling for your world of telescopes. I want to go for the Skywatcher EXPLORER-200P (EQ5) Telescope Package and I already have a Canon 450D. Can you see the ISS with the 200P? I was looking to see the moon, some other planets and so on... So I guess i'm here looking for that bit of "yes you should do just that" or "no wait, have you thought about this" advice. Thank you in advance.
