  1. Well done and an excellent choice of scope.it will do everything you want and more.it will last you a lifetime. One of the best alround scopes on the market.enjoy.
  2. It has no issues .very smooth and very fine adjustments. So much better than nudging .it very easy to build.compared to the commercially available setup.
  3. Congratulations on getting a great scope.you'll enjoy it for years.
  4. I was looking on you tube about dobsonians and a video of zummel 12" was fitted with a commercially available set-up in America. Costing around 300 dolars.it is a simple idea.I made my setup in a similar way.but it cost me around £55:00 in total.to make myself.if you study the setup on you tube and you can make the parts needed.I'm very suprised that skywatcher don't offer that setup for all the dobsonion telescopes.honestly it isn't difficult to make.I have put how I done it .
  5. Hi.has anyone fitted a skywatcher 80st to the skywatcher dobsonion skyliner 200p.to use as finderscope Many thanks.
  6. Want a skywatcher st80 mm.must be right angle model.. Need it to use on my dobsonion 200p skyliner.many thanks.I only require the ota.no eyepieces tripod .or accesores. THIS ITEM IS NO LONGER NEEDED.
  7. I'm sure my slow motion controls will handle the extra weight.but as unsure of the mount.
  8. Hi .I'm thinking of changing my finderscope on my 200p skyliner. Is it possible to fit a skywatcher st80.any information would be helpful to me.
  9. This is a massive improvement over a std dobsonion. Tracking is so easy and smooth.fine adjustments at your finger tips.I wouldn't want to use it without the slow motion now.I just wonder why skywatcher don't offer a retrofit kit for all dobsonion users.at a reasonable price.
  10. Parts were from my garage .and the local woodyard. You can still turn it like you can normally. You can slew it in any direction. You can track so much better than nudging. There is a kit available from the states it's around £300.if you look on you tube type in zummel zlomotion there is a full demonstration.
  11. No.I made them.but there is a kit available for then in the USA.I think about 299 dolars. It cost me £55:00. To make myself.it makes the scope much easier to control in az ans alt.I really enjoy using it.the fine adjustments are so smooth.well worth it in every way.
  12. No had it at xmas 2016.been modding it.with slow motion controls.ect.
  13. 200p skyliner.
  14. Looks interesting.can't wait to see finished sundial.keep up the good work.
  15. Got my revelation self centering adaptor fitted up.well worth the cost.makes changing eyepieces much easier than a screw which marks.anyone else done this.
