  1. Thanks Tony. I've just installed NINA and that has picked it up with no problems. Not sure why this software works but not the others? Jon
  2. Tried it on another PC, still no joy. EZcap Camera drop-down only has "Scan Camera" as an option. Anyone got any ideas please? Thanks, Jon
  3. Thanks Peter, my mistake - I misread the manual. I did Try EZcap (before I misread the manual!) and the camera wasn't recognised using that software either. I'll try it on another PC Yes, I've got the original Power supply plugged in Thanks again, Jon
  4. Hi, Sorry for the numpty question,but here goes! I need to check-out a QHY10 to make sure that I can do things like set the binning, set the sensor cooling temp, etc. I don't need to do any more at present. I have installed the drivers (Win10) from QHY, but I can't get to "talk" to the camera (it shows in a group named "Astroimaging Equipment" in the Windows Device Manager). I've tried installing Smartcap, and ATP, but none of them "see" the camera.(the QHY EZCap doesn't support the QHY10) Any ideas as to how I can do a quick check on the camera? Thanks in advance, Jon

Retail price new is £799, I'm asking £580 but open to offers Socially-distanced collection form PE16 (North Cambridgeshire), or insured / uninsured postage at cost (your choice). Jon
  6. All sorted, thanks for the interest from all and thanks to the buyer! Jon
  7. Hi Carl, According to Google maps, its about 3 hours. Jon
  8. Hi Peter, Thanks for spotting yet another typo - I suspect a cut & paste error ..... I definitely need a secretary! Listing corrected. I'll PM you about the other query. Jon
  9. Its the FT3035B-A. with the following parts for the Esprit 120/150 Model: FT-A30-1903-103 Feather Touch 3" Adapter for Skywatcher Esprit 120+150 Model: riser_r30_2.25 Starlight Instruments Riser 2.25" 2" compression ring end cap (I think this is the EC30-1905-1) Model: ft-ec30-1905-65 Starlight Instruments Feather Touch 3" End Cap with M65X1 Threads for SkyWatcher Corrector The last one replaces the 2" end cap when using the FF Also comes with the A30-903-1 Standard Tube Adaptor Ring (not for Esprit)
  10. I'm not having a good day am I? Its currently got a Moonlite focuser on it (a fact I omitted!) hence no original focuser. Another Edit - I need a proof reader!
  11. Dave, Huge apologies for misleading you; that's a typo - its not a reducer, it the Skywatcher flattener. I'll edit the ad now (good job you asked!) Thanks, Jon
  12. Well for the second time, I've built-up a nice set of kit, not used it and then had to sell without having used it. Astronomy and me just don't seem to have the same affinity as 40 years back! I'm selling the "big stuff" in this advert and will offer other bits later. I'm open to sensible offers and will discount more if you want more than one item. 1. Esprit 120. I bought it off a chap about 12 months back and its in really good condition, but I've literally looked through it once. It comes with a Moonlite Focuser, the hard case, Skywatcher Field Flattener and all the original accessories but without the original focuser. Asking price is £1,500. I also have a Starlite Feathertouch focuser for this scope (I've not fitted it) and will give first-refusal on that to anyone buying the scope. If they don't want it, I'll offer it out in a separate advert (please don't ask me to reserve it for you from this advert, thanks!) SOLD Socially distanced inspection/collection from PE16 (North Cambridgeshire). PM me for any more info. Thanks for looking Jon
  13. Thanks for the update and sorry that it didn’t work out. It looks like the Riccardi x0.75 is still the only really safe bet reducer/flattened for the Esprit 120 and 150.
  14. @MoragaSky - Any feedback on the Apex reducer on the Esprit 120 yet? Jon
