  1. not 100% sure but dont think it prevents you from using the wifi dongle, main problem there ofcourse will be where the wifi dongle plugs in i:e to the handset or the mount. f it plugs into the mount shouldnt be a problem at all, but if it plugs into the handset that would probably be a problem.
  2. no worries,, there is a firstscope just come up on flea bay at a low starting price btw
  3. Hi do you still use this method and setup? especially the SW 130p? do you live stack using sharpcap? or do you view using some other software? do you do live broadcasts? any chance of seeing your results? have same set up and tryign to get EAA going but having a few problems mainly with the actual goto accuracy. thanks
  4. Skywatcher Heritage 130p £110 ovno. comes with standard 25mm, 10mm and 2 x barlow fitted with home made light shroud, has some dust on primary but doesnt affect use, some marks on vixen bar. collection only sorry Thorne, Doncaster South Yorks DN8 area.
  5. have a Skywatcher heritage 130p for sale if interested £110 thorne nr doncaster good overall condition , comes with standard eyepieces and 2x barlow, some dust on primary and few marks on dovetail .
  6. awesome results and much better than my attempts from my bortle 5 skys lol. am also using an Alt- AZ GTI but with 130ps and 183c. but being having problems just getting any sort of stars in focus. So last night resorted to the lil Skywatcher st80 and Gpcam224 which worked a lil better but this was best i could get of the 7 sisters, so as you can see you are doing Fantastic. Great Job keep at it.
  7. you still looking for one? have one that is basically brand new, only been taken out of box and connected to mount to ensure it works. if so make me an offer. am in no hurry to sell , but looking to upgrade my mount so always looking for funds for that.
  8. a serious Telescope is the one used most often by YOU.
  9. My personal choice if I was you and your budget stretches to it would be the Following -- https://www.firstlightoptics.com/skywatcher-mounts/sky-watcher-az-gti-wifi-alt-az-mount-tripod.html at £289 and a Heritage 130P optical tube, New would be £143 or you could look for a second hand one ( https://www.firstlightoptics.com/heritage/skywatcher-heritage-130p-flextube.html ) along with a 15mm and 8 mm BST Starguider eyepiece. could add a 2x barlow. This combo would leave you with a very Portable Scope that will show you almost every thing the night sky has to offer. As to taking photo's it is Possible with the Heritage, just takes a little more work than other scopes. this is what I actually use as my main set up most often.
  10. yes it provides its own wifi, but only for remote control via your phone, NOT for internet connection. It comes with the same eyepieces as the heritage which are adequate however if your budget allows I would advise purchasing a couple of BST starguider eyepieces or a couple of second hand plossi's . it is a very capable scope but more suited to planets than DSO''s than the 130 would be, However you can always pick up a second hand 130 OTA at a later date if you wanted.
  11. The heritage 130P is a terrific scope and will give you fantastic views HOWEVER, the mount is not very compact and there for not really suited to being used as a Travel Scope. It does not disassemble. You could look at the likes of https://www.firstlightoptics.com/sky-watcher-az-gti-wifi/sky-watcher-skymax-102-az-gti.html which would make for a VERY portable system. and would be Terrific for planetary views. Depending on budget of course you could get the Heritage 130p and the AZ-GTi Mount, and use the heritage optical tube with the AZ-GTi. However Seems your also thinking about taking pictures? what camera are you going to be using? the Heritage is not aswell suited to Astrophotography as for example the skymax 102 would be.
  12. You still looking for an eq5? have one with dual axis motor upgrade south yorks Doncaster area also have astro EQ which I see you were also looking for. pm me if still looking.
  13. sorry you didn't get any answers to this, but glad you went ahead and found out for yourself. have the AZ-GTi with both the st80 and a 130p and just waiting on a 183c camera coming, so hoping to do some remote EAA with it. would love to see what you have managed to get with your set up thanks
