  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Thank you Garry for all your help sorting the collimation of my 300p.
  4. Cheers john. Am i right thinking theres a 2 inch and 1.25 version.? If so is there a perference?
  5. 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
  6. Need advise on which collimator to purchase for my 300p dob. There seems to be a big diffence in costs of collimators Regards paul
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Looking for a good quality collimator please message me if you have one available.Or can at least recommend a particularly good one to use for a 300p flextube dob
  10. Im looking to possibly buy a skywatcher flextube dob..Manual version not goto. Either the 250p or 300p. Anyone experienced using any of these range of scopes? Any advise at all would be great Regards paul
  11. I'm thinking of just getting the mount and hopefully they will produce vixen only saddles. John did say he managed to fit his adm but said it somehow didn't look right. I dont really want to spend £150 x 2 for 2 dual fit saddles when really all I'll use is vixen fittings Paul
  12. BTW. I would be interested in knowing if most people are ordering just the basic mount with or without any accessories? Saddles,encoders,etc? Regards Paul
  13. I will be ordering one early in the new year.
