  1. Been an age but I actually got myself a Sky-Watcher 10" flex tube dob
  2. can you buy a skywatcher 10" dob mount on its own ive seen an orion made one but its expensive can I not just buy a skywacther standard dob mount?
  3. looking for something very simple to use that would help me find DSo's galaxy's it needs to be easy to use and points out interesting things to view for a newbie to use and hopfully doesn't cost much. something id take with me when out anyone recommend anything? possibly link to it ? thanks in advance
  4. ps I already have purchased a HR 8 and 15mm planetary lenses
  5. here's where im at atm deciding between the 120 on an eq5 2nd hand same price as the dob or the new dob seems realy hard to choose between them and I've never used a refractor. im mostly into planets or would like the best planets views I can get Dso's well mayb in time but I Cant find any genrally and don't know where they are even and tbh I just go out and point the scope a bright objects 9in the past experience) im quite new to it have owned a 4.5" reflector in the past. seems really hard to choose obv the refracter used seems a good deal with an eq5 but thr is a simplistic appeal in a dob so simple it seems very tuff to choose and there seems to be varied opinion I spose mainly for me its the best observing views with the best detail lunar and planets I think the 120 has Right ascention tracking drive to well its helios 120 but im fairly confident they are the same scope
  6. I see thanks for the replies and to the make I was thinking skywatcher

    hi

    thanks all for the warm welcome
  8. considering the 200p dob also thinking 120 evostar on eq5 if I can find good secondhand one or possibly a tal 100rs peeps keep saying dob for the price but im really more interested in planets and moon and not DSO's
  9. also thinking about it anyone know if a Evostar 120 is lighter?
  10. weight for mount and then scope separated pls in kilo's would be best .
  11. im still struggling weather to get a 200p dob or a reflector and cant work out if the dob will be better or the refractor as im really more interested in moon and planet viewing I kind of see a lot of preferences both ways im down to those two or possibly the evostar 120
  12. how heavy is it I keep seeing different weight some saying its heavy some not ive seen some one move it and to me it looked very easy to move and set up as I will have to put mine if I get one in the boot of the car and drive to use it if its is very cumbersome im kind of unsure it is large but separated looks like it is quite light? or else im maybe looking at a Evostar 120 eq5 depends as price is quite different, but maybe I find something second hand.
