  1. Welcome to SGL! I cannot speak for Germany, but I do wish you goodluck in finding a nice spot.
  2. Welcome to SGL. Vlaiv pretty much hit the nail on the head, so take his comments to heart, and that knowledge will help you in the coming days/months/years.
  3. Thank you for your response. Can I ask which camera you are using along with this setup? Also was this the same tripod you had before you upgraded? and you are welcome to attach some pictures you have captured with the setup Thanks.
  4. Wasn't sure exactly where this should go so moderators if this is the wrong place feel free to remove/move the post. I am wondering of your thoughts on my purchase, decided to finally try starting out astrophotography and heres what I got (see image) I understand the tripod may not be the best, but for the weight of the gear I would be using I am assuming it will not be so bad? I will be pairing it with a Canon EOS 600d unmodded. Clear skies to you all and may the clouds p**s off
  5. Ok thank you. I think I will buy the mount first then and then evaluate what scope I would like and just use my camera for the time being thank you
  6. Thank you for your response. The HEQ5 Pro is one that I have had my eye on. I do not have any other lenses other than the default one that came with the Canon, the 18-55mm I think it was. If I were to just get the mount and use just my camera, what would I need to mount my Camera properly to the HEQ5 Pro? Thanks.
  7. I already have visual setup but i was wondering of a semi decent astrophotography setup with a max budget of £1000? I have a Canon EOS 600d with t-ring already so the camera isn't needed to be purchased. Suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  8. I had just the 1.25" adapter in earlier when I had it out during the night sky, and either way I extended it all the way in or all the way out of focus, the weird inside tube view was still present. I tried finetuning the focuser to no avail. I cannot remember entirely in regards to which way makes the circle of light smaller, sorry.
  9. Update: as I look through the eyepiece at a star, all i can see it inside my tube, with the 4 lines and circle in the middle, never reaching focus. Any help is appreciated.
  10. Hello, I have a question regarding the focusing. For some reason, I cannot seem to gain focus on any of my eyepieces without combining the 1.25" and 2" adapters. If I use just the 1.25" alone, I cannot gain focus, but if I attach that to the 2" focuser adapter and then insert it into the focuser, I am able to gain focus? Is this a collimation issue? Or is it something specific to this scope? It is a Skywatcher Skyliner 250PX. It seems as if I cannot draw the focuser out far enough with just the 1.25 attached, if I have both adapter attached I seem to be able to bring out the focuser far enough to focus. Thanks.
  11. Warm welcome to the warmest place on the internet
  12. I wouldn't risk not having it replaced, it is not worth it. You paid for the product, and the entire product, even that missing tiny bit of the secondary mirror
