  1. I will be out for the fourth night in a row. Yay
  2. Im out again tonight. Looking good here in northamptonshire
  3. Got the dob out tonight. Its a little breezy. Just hope it stays clear here in northamptonshire.
  4. Ive only had my 300p for a couple of weeks so not sure if this info helps but i bought a baader 47mm click lock for my 300p. My main eyepieces used so far are 26mm nagler and 17 mm and 10mm ethos . I have the stock focuser and when out fully its 50mm. So the baader makes it almost 100mm Which leaves me with sufficient back focus if ever needed.
  5. Heres the 120ED i bought off you Stu . My first scope i bought when starting off some 4 years back . It has served me well and ive done some upgrades to it over the years.
  6. I did manage a quick hour of visual with my new 300p for a quick test run after collimation Just packing up now.
  7. Thank you Garry for all your help sorting the collimation of my 300p.
  8. Cheers john. Am i right thinking theres a 2 inch and 1.25 version.? If so is there a perference?
  9. Thank you for all your help so far. So do i need a concenter and a cheshire? Up till now ive only owned refractors.Mainly to avoid collimating.. Paul
  10. Need advise on which collimator to purchase for my 300p dob. There seems to be a big diffence in costs of collimators Regards paul
  11. Cheers Baz I thought that was the answer It would be nice if i could find something as a quick release to replace the nut. but i will adjust it just a little to make it slightly tighter and see how i get on
  12. well i purchased a 300p second hand for £475 2 days ago One thing id like to know is can the azimuth be adjusted using the nut on the baseplate to give a little bit of friction as i find if i just touch the eyepiece with my face when observing it moves slightly
  13. yes im all set up for tonight also
