  1. Hello, I have a spare TeleVue Barlow 2x 1.25" for sale. The item is in very good condition. Looking for £75 including postage (preferably UK only). Any questions, please ask! Thank you!
  2. Thank you! I spent a good few hours last night updating the StarSense camera, handcontroller and the mount. Took a while to figure it all out but I think I've done it. Can't wait to try it again - fingers crossed it works next time!
  3. Hi Dave7, Just wondering if you managed to solve the problem? I recently bought the same telescope and starsense and tried to use it two nights ago. Tried to use connect and align on the SkyPortal app and also kept on getting error messages. Looking forward to your reply.
  4. I think this book should be quite good for a 10 year old StarFinder For Beginners - https://www.amazon.co.uk/StarFinder-Beginners-Maggie-Aderin-Pocock/dp/0241286832
  5. Hi everyone, I'm selling my Sky-Watcher 9x50m Finderscope including mount. Item is in good condition and selling as I have upgraded to a RACI Finderscope. Please see photos, asking for £25 in total including delivery. Any questions, please let me know.
  6. Thanks for all your replies - I do find myself reluctant to go outside and set up the SW250PX. I would love to have something that does not involve downgrading the views but at the same time - I can lift up and carry outside in one go.
  7. Hi East Lancs! I've got a SkyWatcher 250PX; I'm finding it a bit bulky so I'm quite keen to get something to "grab and go". So quite interested in other technologies/different telescopes available out there. How do you find your SW GTi 127 compared to your XT10i?
  8. If the power runs out - is it possible to manually push/pull the telescope?
  9. Hello, I have a Sky-Watcher 250PX (10 inches) and still quite a beginner to astronomy. I was having a look at FLO's website and wondered how would it compare to a SCT/MCT. For example https://www.firstlightoptics.com/se-series/celestron-nexstar-8se.html or https://www.firstlightoptics.com/maksutov/skywatcher-skymax-180-pro.html Would the views be much different on a SCT/MCT? Thank you!
