  5. For the last 12 months been stored in doors, The bolts rusted due to condensation. I assure you the internals are fine, I've had it running a couple of times, one of the members of my astro club checked it out with me.
  6. Sorry this posting is late, but I have been preoccupied with personal stuff. The item is for sale on ebay I am selling my Skywatcher NEQ6 Pro with Synscan.

  10. HI I am new to the area, Although I am orriginally from the Wirral, I've been away for many years. Now retired I've retuned home. I've been a cameraman for most of my life, but only in the last few years got involved in Astro imageing. I have a nice setup but would like to spend time with more experinced astonmers, my main interest is imageing, although I'm interested in all aspects of astronomy and the science.
  11. I am building a new observatory, I want to control my setup from a conservatory about 30 ft away. I would like to connect two computers together via a network to operate all my controlls. I am using two pre built Windows 7 OS, with a laptop for the observatory and another PC in the conservatory. How do I setup the network and is there any software that can help remotely operate the observatory. How do I do this.
