  1. Hi All Does anyone have any recommendations for a good bag/box to store various and sundry items used for Astronomy/Astrophotography? I would want to store a compass, spirit level, eye pieces, cables etc. What is everyone using for this? Many thanks A
  2. Hi David That's very kind. I will PM you now. Thanks again. A.
  3. Hi thanks for the feedback, that's very helpful. Which size camera bolt is it and where should I get one from? Any suggestions re where to source the spacer would be great. Thanks!
  4. Hi all If I wanted to mount my ZWO guidescope on the ED80 rings what adapter would I need? I would like to use the finderscope mount for a finderscope instead of the guidescope. Many thanks A.
  5. Many thanks for all your advice. One item I hadn't selected was a light pollution filter. Does anyone have any recommendations for one that isn't going to break the bank? Thanks again!
  6. Thanks for the clarification. So it sounds like I'll need a second Lynx Astro and a female cigarette to DC. Is that correct?
  7. I ordered one of these from amazon Masterplug WBXBFG10B Outdoor IP54 Weatherproof Box with 13amp 4 Socket 10 meter Extension Lead - Black https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0062GTL42/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_Jb.JCb2QVJJKC
  8. For the most part I will be using it in the garden very close to 240 outlets
  9. There is a two port Dew controller with DSLR power in the list. I also have a two battery extended grip for the 600D. Thanks for checking, I want to and order as much as I can in one go.
  10. Good point on the FF, I'll change it to the skywatcher.
  11. Hi All I'm about to purchase an ED80 for astro photography and have quite a few items in my basket at FLO . Would you mind casting your eye over my selections and let me know what is missing or what alternatives I should pick. I will be attaching a modified 600D. I'm based in suburban Surrey, UK so presumably I'll need a light pollution filter of some sort. Street lights are turned off in residential roads after midnight now to save money so that will help. Many thanks in advance
  12. I just emailed Juan and he replied straight away. Thanks again
  13. Hi all I'm looking to purchase some eye pieces and a barlow for use with an 80ED and also possibly a MAK150. I was considering a Baader 2.25 barlow and zoom hyperion and maybe some other Baader eyepieces. I'm sure everyone has there own preference on brand based on experience and I would appreciate your input.
