  1. hello there

    Ive seen your post on adding a lazy susan bearing to the 130p. Would you be so kind to let me know where you bought the bearing and what the dimensions are

    Just got this scope and generally happy , are there any other tweaks you would recomend?

    cheers

  2. congrats it is a great feeling when you find a new object i still think it should be called the apple core nebula because thats exactly what it looks like to me a gorgeous grey apple core
  3. Lovely looking scope i have had my eye on the same one and see there back in stock.and for the money looks a bargain dual speed crayord fan and its closed tube so saving money on a truss dob light shield and also a bearing base instead of teflon pads.i bet there out of stock when i want one after christmas congrats on getting an old friend back
  4. This is what your setup should look like do you have the slow motion controlls ?
  5. Oh dear why would someone sell it without 2 rings that looks very unstable and will eventually bend or snap off. http://www.firstlightoptics.com/skywatcher-mounts/skywatcher-telescope-tube-rings.html these will do the job £22 just remove the old ring from the orange dovetail then fit these to the orange dovetail pop the tube in and off you go hope this helps you might need another dovetail maybe someone can confirm this
  6. Lovely picture gorgeous round stars and i love the colour of the spiral arms
  7. i have a normal barlow skywatcher delux(2 lens) and it worked fine in my 130p with all the eyepieces i have bst 15mm,vixen npl 30mm,omni plossl 9mm and the 10mm,25mm that came with the scope
  8. hey everyone just scouring the net about astronomy i came across this free site.in the articles there is a ton of info about everything to do with photography/astrophotography thought it might be helpfull http://www.clarkvision.com/index.html
  9. when you post a reply you can see post and more reply options press more reply options then you will see you can attach files hope that helps congrats on the scope btw

  12. me to dave astro babys guide is only one i found showing the offset of fast newts,before that i was trying to get the collimation cap reflection central as the other guides just tell you everything needs to be concentric
  13. yes dave f5 130p-ds i think the offset confuses people.
