  5. i have found all the forecasts to be completely wrong over the last month. got my hopes up at 6pm mostly clear in Hull then it was gone by 7pm
  6. Hi, is the dual channel controller still available.
  7. Echo this i have an azeq5 and if i have the scope in perfect balance backlash prevents guiding. Remove backlash and guiding is a dream. Look up balance issues on you tube talking about easy west bias.
  8. I have found the guys at moonlite very helpful, dont be afraid to send them an e-mail and ask.
