  3. Have a look at this http://stargazerslounge.com/index.php?/topic/205265-US-equivalent-of-Skywatcher-Heritage-130P-?
  4. Gratz on your choice of scope, after visiting my local Astro Club, I ended up buying a collimation cap, laser collimator and a 8mm bst eyepiece. JimW
  5. There will be 3 silicon plugs covering the holes, I removed them fairly easily using a scalpel.
  6. The eq mount if correctly set up will follow the rotation of the sky. Very useful for astro photo and high x viewing, the 130p is quite capable of giving the views you want. JimW
  7. Hi lpeek, if you can briefly say what your aspirations for your new scope is you should get some good advice. I personally chose to go for the Heritage 130p, had no need for a Eq and am more than happy, collimation is nothing to be frightened about, a visit to a local club/society would be a great help to you.

  8. Light pollution will affect any telescope the loss of contrast is in the air not your scope. Stray light from ground sources can cause a loss of contrast too but this is easily combatted by a shroud if needed. Remember oft quoted " aperture is king ".
  9. I was there too, great night over 300 people turned up, big thanks to SAS members.
  10. I'm using the bst short 2x apochromatic from sky's the limit without any problems
  11. +1 for the Heritage 130p as a starter scope but not suitable for astro photography. Best to go to your local club for advice
  12. Finished at 8, telescope out at 8.30, binoculars used till 9, just sitting down to eat now. Indigestion for the rest of the night
  13. Hello from a fellow N Easterner, if you contact a local club am sure they'll have a knowledge of "good spots"
  14. Hi & welcome, weather not so good in NE England either, happy reading
  15. Some good general advice recently posted here http://stargazerslounge.com/topic/203738-observing-nebule-and-andromeda/
