  1. I have decided to clear out some less used items and this was one of those impulse buys which unfortunately does not get used as much as it should, purchased for travel use i have literally used it 4 times in over a year, it works perfectly and have it connected up to SkySafari 6 pro app on phone or tablet or with the standard synscan pro app, comes with the supplied extension and tripod, a Skywatcher ST80 with attached Telrad finder and 2 standard eyepieces along with a 45° piece, the mount runs off 8 rechargeable AA batteries which easily last all night or a 12v jack plug supply if you have one, Plenty of literature and review videos on the internet, Looking for £260 as a complete sale and no splitting at the moment, i would prefer for you to see what your getting and to save any postal damage so collection only at the moment from DE5 Derbyshire Thanks Wayne
  2. I know what you mean Alan, i grabbed them yesterday
  3. Thanks Steve, looks like its the 10x50s then, thanks again
  4. Thanks for the input guys much appreciated, its pointing towards the 10x50s i think, i mentioned the 8x40 simply because i have read on here and other sites how light the 8x40s are in any make or model and are a pleasure to look through but i havnt actually looked through a set of that size so cannot compare the view or weight difference, i do know i had a peep through some old Minolta standard extra wide view 10x50s which were left in a holiday cabin for guests and i really liked the view on them but a bit harder to find at the moment. Thanks again
  5. Evening Can i ask if any of you members have/are using the Olympus DPS-I 8x40 Binoculars for any astro work?, or the 10x50s for that matter, im looking for a light weight all rounder and have read a few good reviews on this set, i believe they were called the trooper but changed at some point Thanks
  6. Billy the cable is that fragile its unbelievable, very flimsy stuff, the parts you are talking about are previous war wounds...im going to replace it all when i figure out which is which...time for the multi meter i think cheers
  7. Morning all, does anyone happen to have an image or even remember which position the 4 wires are fitted in the Hitec focuser motor at all? i know its a long shot but the outer case has come away taking 3 of the 4 wires along with it...Thanks in advance
  8. All Good, M3 it is and a hand full on order....just in case. Thanks everyone
  9. Thing is Julian i have found the rubber rings....just cant find the screws..Thanks for that mate, much appreciated..
  10. Hi All I have been doing some maintenance on my ED80 focuser that involved removing a skywatcher autofocuser bracket and was wondering if anyone knows the thread size of the four outer screws that hold the bracket and/or focus shaft in place?, the only info i could find was in the autofocuser parts list that included some longer ones to fix the bracket in place but then that only describes them as four Philips head screws...the others are in a safe place.....a very safe place...as in put down and forever forgotten safe place.... Thanks Wayne
  11. Thanks guys, yes SHO was used, i will try out the different combinations when i get some more time but overall pleased for a first try
  12. Hello All This is my very first processed narrow-band image i have taken or processed this way before so looking for pointers if possible, about an hour each of HA,SII,OIII, i know there is a lot of processing software out there now that can save some time doing this kind of imaging and processing but this one is done with DSS, PS and Astronomy tools Gear comprises of SW ED80, ZWO1600MMC, ZWO Filter Wheel Thanks Wayne
  13. Hello all, does anyone know the cable colour arrangement for a Sky-Watcher Handset Cable for AZ Goto & AZ GTi at all? I wanted to try out my eq6 handset on a skywatcher gti but of coarse...they are different...so intend to make me own.. Thanks
  14. And best 20% from a 1000 using this setup and a ZWO290 in daylight....
