  4. Hi, Are you referring to the adapter on the drawtube 2" with the thumb screw if so fire off an email to Aunty FLO to see if this is compatible with your scope as on my 150pds I changed mine as the original kept on pinching my accessories https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/astro-essentials-2-inch-compression-ring-adapter-for-sky-watcher-newtonians-and-72ed-refractor-m54.html £29.00 if it is a 2" to 1.25" adapter then have a look at this below it even has a t2 connector built in to attach a camera with the relevant adaptor https://www.firstlightoptics.com/adapters/baader-2-to-125-reducer-adapter.html £27.00

    Hi Michael, Welcome and enjoy and ask away any questions you have.
  7. You could have a look on astroboot.co.uk they have a 130mm mirror set albeit 900mm FL for 41 euros=£34.20. And they are closed till 13th Nov
  8. From what I have read you need "Conformal coating" to protect the connections when in situations similar to yours. But I may not be 100% as your a dealing with sensor so care is to be taken https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conformal_coating https://uk.farnell.com/electrolube/efsc15ml/conformal-silicone-coating/dp/1616573?ost=efsc15

  10. R2,R9,R11,R14 Resistors 330ohm =4 R18 Resistors 1K =1 R3,R4,R5 Resistors 1.2K =3 SORRY NONE LEFT R19 Resistors 2.2K =1 R7,R8,R13,R20 Resistors 4.7K =4 R1,R10,R12R15,R16,R17 Resistors 10K =6 R6 Resistors 1M =1 is this correct?
  11. did you get this sorted i.e went and bought a shed load from the long river or are you still looking? I have a spare stamp to the UK? Resistors weigh less than a b'day card so let me know which values
