10 Good
  1. Hi Is anyone using a 50/60mm guider scope with the LVI smart guider 2 ? Thanks J
  2. How much more detail would you get from 20 hours of data compared to say 10 ? Is there an average time to aim for ? Thanks J
  3. As far as I understand it if you don’t have good alignment and then guide you will get field rotation.
  4. to one of these ? http://www.opticalvision.co.uk/astronomical_accessories/Focusers/dual_speed_2_crayford_focuser_for_sky_watcher_refractors
  5. ok, just the stock focuser with sw 80ed had a male thread which you could interchange adaptors etc.
  6. Thanks for your help, i've order a bag over various sizes. Next question though ! Shouldnt the the 2" eye peice holder unscrew from the focuser tube
  7. Hi All On the 2" eye piece adaptor there is a grub screw, I’ve manage to miss lay this could someone kindly measure this so I can find a replacement. Ta
  8. Bump Question for those who have used DARV. when selecting a star should it be average brightness one ? just i tried this the other night and i used Sirius. now the line looked very much that it had overlapped but it occured to me later that as it was so bright that maybe the two lines and just blurred together. or should i turn the iso setting right down ?
  9. Thought i would hijack this old thread instead of starting a new one. I have pier but not obs. Could anyone tell how you would select a new target with out having to go back into the house where the laptop would be ? or is a case of taking the laptop with you ? Thanks
  10. Hi Guys How are people finding the star alignment after usising this ? Cheers J
  11. BBC News - Smog alert in England and Wales not going to improve tonight then
  12. but they should still be able to tell you if they are in stock.
  13. Arent these guys the supplier for everyone in the uk ? Skywatcher Astronomical Telescopes - Best Telescopes by OVL call them and find out.
  14. understanding weather charts will give you the best idea of what kind of weather to expect, then the beeb have imrpoved their service no end recently and if you can find a local weather station this should be able to give dew points and local wind, temp etc.
