  1. Hi @Fish thanks for this, I have been looking at doing the same as you with an EQ5 mount (mine is a skywatcher so not sure if the gearing still applies?) How did you know what gearing to use? I've tried to use the onstep group but just find it a bit strange on how ot all works I'd really like to build this but want to get everything ready first. It doesn't appear that you can purchase the pre manufactured PCB anymore which isn't too much of an issue as is a simple circuit layout really so will just make my own up. Thanks in advance!
  2. Hi all, I nearly took the plunge earlier with a purchase of a Bresser Messier Dobsonian 8. This was supposed to be a gift for my wife (and me) for our wedding anniversary. I was looking at doing photography with it however have been doing more reading and others on other forums have said it isn’t really suitable for deep space, nebula etc and that I’d be better off with something like a skywatcher explorer 130pds and an EQ5 pro mount. From what I was told about the Bresser, down the road I would be able to add that to an EQ Mount too but now I’m just getting very confuse
