  1. Hi, Does this also have 12v outputs, & if so do you know what power they can deliver?
  2. Thanks everyone for your thoughts. I have Solar PV panels on my house so all electric is solar when the sun shines, so charging any sort of portable power tank isn't a problem. I'll definitely look into the cost of storage; deep cycle batteries Vs the more fashionable Solar generators. I've also seen some Lithium based mobility scooter batteries on eBay which might do the trick as well.
  3. Hi, I'm interested to know how people power their Mount and telescope accessories (dew heaters, cameras, etc.) when out on location. I've seen mixed reviews of the Skywatcher/Celestron Power Tanks 7 & 17Ah battery packs and was wondering if anybody has any experience using Solar Generators like the Allpowers 372W Solar Generator or similar, which contain Lithium Polymer battery packs. The Lead acid type Battery packs have their limitations and it would be nice to power the mount on electricity derived from solar power. https://www.youtube....h?v=4C4yp4-aL_I or search Amazon for Solar Generators, and you'll see various alternatives Any advice or constructive comments welcome.

  4. Hi all, as a complete beginner, who is gradually getting some kit together, the question of which Polar Alignment App I should get for my Android phone is exercising my mind. Looking at the android play store there seems to be a myriad to choose from, which do members recommend & why?
  5. 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?
  6. Yes please to pictures. By the way where are you located?
