  1. Clearly looking for the Dog Star !
  2. Sorry Skipper Billy !! Strange thing is every time I observe I always see the Cats Paw Nebula ?
  3. Forgot to mention also I've never failed to find NGC 6334.
  4. I've found this to be the best one yet. It's also useful for star hopping,once you've trained it up.
  5. Thanks onlyme, Must have been a senior moment I don't know how I missed it. Many thanks for the information.
  6. Anyone help please. I'm struggling to find the tripod adapter socket on my Opticron Adventure 10x50 T WP I've pulled a plastic cap off where I thought the thread insert was but it's blank Any advice please. thanks for reading
  7. Sale Pending 28 August. Baader Mk III Colimator. Used once. As new with original box and instruction leaflet. £54 including tracked delivery. Prefer bank transfer. Reason for sale. I've changed to refractors. Thanks for reading.
  8. Yep ADM vixen saddles on my Skytee II as well. Very solid and reassuring.
  9. Thanks for the advice Peter It makes sense to extend the tripod legs to see if that solves the problem before buying an extension pier.
  10. Hi all, I am using my SW Evostar 120 ED on a Skytee II with the 1.75 steel leg mount. Observing the sun at this time of the year I am on my knees to view. Is the answer to remove legs just below my knees or will the SW extension tube solve the problem but still giving me the rigidity I need. Thanks for your advice.
  11. In my past research I came across a formula for choosing EP's Hope this will help in deciding what to buy. Taking The focal length of your scope if you multiply by 3/4 this result will give you a High Powered EP. Focal length multiplied by 1 1/4 will give a Medium High powered EP Focal length multiplied by 2 will give a Medium Low powered EP Focal length mutiplied by 3 will give a Low powered EP. The chart below gives the example of a 120 mm F5.0 Startravel scope.
