  1. Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a reasonably portable goto mount for a William Optics Z103 refractor, I'm just starting out but, my main interest is astrophotography. My budget is limited. I spotted the Explore Scientifice exos2-gt with pmc-eight goto system, which looks like quite an elegant solution, as it does away with the need for handcontroller & separate computer, everything being controller by an app on a tablet, and wondered if anybody in the forum owns this mount system and what they think of it's performance & usability?
  2. Hi, I can't see the price of the mount anywhere?
  3. Yes please to pictures. By the way where are you located?
  4. Hi, I know it's been awhile since first posting but is this mount still available?
  5. Hi everyone, I'm looking to get a reasonably portable astrophotography set-up, using a 60-100mm refractor, with a suitable goto mount. I spotted the Explore Scientifice exos2-gt with pmc-eight goto system, which looks like quite an elegant solution, and wondered if anybody in the forum owns this mount, and what they think of it's performance & usability?
  6. Hi I have an opportunity to acquire for visual imaging, a 2nd hand (manufactured 2000) Russian TAL1 reflector telescope for about £60. Is this a reasonable price,? Being new to astronomy & not currently owning a telescope I've no idea whether TAL is a quality product, so I'd welcome your thoughts.
  7. Sky-J, thanks for the info
  8. Valiv, thanks for the comprehensive advice I'll definitely check out the astronomy tools page to ascertain what sort of telescope size is appropriate.
  9. Hi Len1257, I live in Barnstaple North Devon, in a quiet close on the edge of town, which has reasonably dark skies at night and no streetlights. However, Exmoor national park (A national Dark sky reserve) is literally 5 miles up the road. There might be mileage in getting something like the SW EQM 35 Pro, which i understand is lighter than the EQ5 but can be configured as a camera tracker with greater load capacity than the Star Adventurer. decisions decisions!
