Looking for help ,Can a hotec collimator go out of colimation, we've not had clear nights in N I for a while so i thought, good chance to clean up the scope and other bits, i have a celestron collimation eyepiece so i tried it in the scope and the collimation was well out so i put a col cap in and set about colimation useing the cap as well as the col eyepiece and got it well lined up but when i put the Hotec in it was badly out so im thinking my Hotec is out of line, if so does anyone know where i could send it to to get it reset:icon_scratch:

  7. Here in N Ireland 40 mile per hour winds from the south, rain all day Just checked my weather station strongest gust today was 46mph @ 4.35 wind seams to be dropping as the last gust was 25.1 mph don't think i'll see many stars tonight ( thank goodness for SGL )
  8. Just wonder what the optics are like in it, hope they haven't let the optics go just to make the starsense techology be the main selling point, After all its the scope that you look through not where it can point.

  15. HI Misa Is the screen on the handset still showing data or is it blank I,e had a lot of trouble with mine, my handset works ok but i cant read the screen as its blank.I,ve been trying to buy a new screen for it, even tried to get in touch with skywatcher the website is so bad they don't seem to care.
