  2. For reluctant sale is my NEQ6 PRO mount. Have at last built an external (in backyard) fixed pier and mount to save my sanity and back. Am including a MAPLIN DC SUPPLY with the mount but will split if need be. The mount is in excellent condition hardly used and has had no more than 20 hours use and complete with handset all accesories leads manuals and so on. Upgraded locking bolts (as photo) when bought. Bought brand new from First light Optics 4 year ago and as said has had very minimal use. Asking £740 or very near offer and prefer collection in person. Any questions please ask. **SOLD**

  5. Morning All Can somebody please advise/compare on the Helios quantum 7.4 against the Helios Apollo 20x100 /25x110. Thanks all
  6. Thanks both for that "You can buy a modded 450D for not a great deal of money" can you point me in the direction where i can pick one up.Looked at a few on Ebay but not modded ! First attempts at imaging using A FLASHED Toucam pro all seems ok on Tal 100s but focusing diffs using the Tal 150k .So is it a case of using a focal reducer ? Ta both.
  7. Hi Folks, Contemplating my first attempt at imaging...so....considering a used Canon eos 400/450d dslr to buy so please what is involved/how to mod one of these cameras ! Ta all.Rob
  8. Hi all,Thinks i am getting to grips with polar alignment ...um....should the RA axis slew as well as the DA axis during an initial alignment ?...Ta all
  9. Hi All,Looking at the initial set of an Eq6 and polar alignment and attempting to under stand it !! Can the polar alignment (setting the location,date circle,index marker etc; be set up a few hours before viewing and is it right that the alignment(transit) to be done when ready to view in conjunction with a software named Polar Finder.Ta all.
  10. Ok All, Many thanks,especially to Andy H for suggs and finally got one milled(pics) for 15 quid.So a nice snug fit on the dovetail...so...just awaiting this cloudy spell to blow away.Out of interest the label in side the tube reads No 0150 03 and it is the 3 vane type .Ta Rob
  11. Hi all, Have just dug out from the depths of my shed a philips webcam but the label is faded but can make out just some vague lettering 740 ! have attempted to connect to laptop(windows 7) but nowt springs into life !! Any ideas on what model it is and if recognised are ther any drivers ?...Ta all
  12. Hi all,Recently got hold of a Tal150k and looking for a suitable dovetail to attach to an eg6 head.....so......looking at the pics there is a dovetail attached to the base of the ota which is the same shape as the dovetail of the mount so from my limited knowledge i need a double dovetail that would slide into the dovetail on the ota and then the mount !! hope you get my drift so to speak !!Looking into the tube the dovetail fixings appear to be rounded studs/bolts ! So is there such a dovetail out in the market place ?? TA All.
  13. Ok and thanks moriniboy and andyh ...Not being familiar with the dovetail mount is it a case of using the exsisting dovetail on the eq mount or buy another and mod that ? Ta all
  14. Hi all,Need to attempt to mount my Tal 6" ota on a borrowed EQ mount,with a view to buying it,...so....is/are there any compatible tube ring and dovetail out in the market place or anyone attempted a conversion of the exsisting Tube rings....Ta all.
  15. Hi all, Is a Skywatcher Explorer 200p suited to astro photography either with camera or other means ? Thanks
