    COMPLETED - skywatcher 127 mak

    Just seen this on Gumtree https://www.gumtree.com/p/telescopes/automatic-sky-watcher-telescope-/1302121350
  3. Cheers Geoffers Got it for 140 quid...slight bargain One of the things i thought might be up was firmware but struggled to put the handset into data mode
  4. Update... Replaced the batteries which stopped the error messages but the motor was still not working So I pulled off the cover and took the motor off, to find it was working *yay* This must mean it is jammed, so a quick unbolt of the arm reseat and do back up and it's now working fine Ngwillym. Thank you for the post. I was writing this one when you replied
  5. Afternoon all I recently bought a celestron 127 slt, it was described as faulty "up and down not working" The handset reports No response 16 & 17 I've just bought some fresh batteries incase it is as simple as that. Is there any other checks I could do to find out the problem

    It's my birthday next week I'm thinking of the ES as a present, however over on CN there is talk of it not being much cop on higher mag eyepieces (15mm if my awful memory serves) There is also mentions of its weight, it will be used in a skywatcher evo 90 and a heritage 130p. The 90 would be ok I think? but the heritage??
  9. Inspiring stuff mate Seems I got it right on my own anyway
  10. Cheers Charic, I have seen that video* - and am a metal worker - so would be easy for me to do. I have checked the central position of the secondary holder with a set of dividers and it was off slightly so re-centered it and also adjusted it so the face is square to the front of the scope also, I had the secondary off last night to 'paint' the edges and back of the mirror with a black marker pen * In amongst hundreds i've watched trying to understand collimation
  11. I did try this method but the mirror flops slightly and tighten the screws to try and eliminate this. I'll try again tomorrow as my wife is now getting sick of me and the scope on the kitchen table
