  1. I've updated the Goto Synscan to version 3.37. It now asks for elevation, where can I find this out for my location. Jim
  2. I've got one from Maplin and it's worked fine . Thankngod! thanks for all your help
  3. Is this it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004ZMYTYC/ref=pd_lpo_sbs_dp_ss_3?pf_rd_p=569136327&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B000067SNB&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=1QWT6BEP8WV8W33J7NWR
  4. Yea. This an eBay special! Looks like a trip to Maplin or PC world. Don't suppose you know what one you brought do you?
  5. Help!! I've tried to update my Synscan v3 AZ goto. Followed instructions. Done the 0/8 power up etc etc. I get this message when I try to update. Firmware update failed. Cycle power to Synscan and try again. Now the handset won't power up unless I run it in update mode, and I have tried to run it again. It gets to 3.74% and that message pops up. ?
  6. thanks all for the tips, I will try on our next clear night
  7. I always point the scope north then you manually align to the first star when you follow the 2 star alignment. I am using a 20mm eyepiece to set up, the object falls into the FoV, however not centered. I just wondered if there was a way to increase the accuracy, especially when looking for deeper sky objects that are harder to see.
  8. I've got a Synscan AZ goto. i go through the set up, I.e level mount, settings on Synscan, 2 star alignment and the slight manual adjustment you would expect to do whilst doing that. Then when I use it, some objects are off centre. Am I expecting too much, or can I make the mount more accurate ? Thanks jim
  9. I think no matter what tape i use, these have had it.
  10. I've managed to drop and smash my 8 aa battery pack for my skywatcher 127 goto AZ mount. Anyone know if the ones on eBay if I use the connector and cable will be ok, or where I can buy another one. Gutted!!
  11. Hi, I have a Syncscan AZ. Been using batteries to power it. Cold weather just killing them. I have at home a 12v ac adapter. The instruction booklet is asking for a 11-15 DC power supply. Will my adapter be suitable? Scared of plugging it in in case it goes bang!! Thanks Jim
  12. How do I load in the Astrophotography plugins into Gimp. I have downloaded them and copied the *.exe files in the Gimp plug in folder and the same for the scripts in the C drive. I cant seem to find how to get them to load into Gimp to use. Thanks Jim
  13. What photo editing software is available for free? I have Star stacker already. Are there any good ones I should have?
