  6. hope it gets sorted out soon astrobaby great site help me out when i needed to colimate my 200p
  7. i have had my 200p since april this year and travel to dark sites in kent all the time . . .i was thinking about the dob but bought the eq and added the ra and dec clock drive and that really makes a difference as it keeps the target your looking at in the eye piece . . I was out looking at the moon and it clouded over 5 mins later i was still on target and other people with me could carry on lookingi will i ate my sandwich and then went back to it and still on target the guy with the dob was still having to manually track . . so just to say i prefer the tracking im i lazy lol
  8. Thats great ! tried to find this last week but at 2am was getting tired
  9. yes give ebay ago but i got mine from flo (first light optics) for £24 and found it well made feels solid and i have got to near perfect collimation so really pleased with it ,also if your collimating a reflector for the first time check out astrobabys web page for a step by step guide ,i found it really helpful
  10. Hi munchkjn,i was also looking at m13 last night was fantastic but it was the first time i have viewd this so i cannot really compare from a previous veiwing.Although i would recomend collimating your scope as then you can say you are getting the best possible view through your scope.The seeing conditions plays a big factor in the quality of what you see along with light poluttion,so get out your cheshie and give it a whirl its all good fun
  11. Hi samtheeagle just want to say that i am also glued to this thread although its a bit over my head i understand that a motor can be controlled from a circuit board, thats about it:DBut your drawing me in very interesting stuff,i also badly want to drive up my eq5 and have not got a spare 100 quid at moe would be great to build one!
  12. Ah quite a few threads on this tonight up and down the country looks like a great night for too see this.
  13. For the first time as a stargazer managed to see a fantastic view of some noctilucent clouds in the east kent area,not seen this before and if i ever have did not know what i was looking at,and just to top it off to the west a bright iridium flare about 10:30 no camera with me so i bit gutted but great too see.Has anybody seen some noctilucent clouds lately?
  14. Just found some footage of looking out of the cupolar
  15. Yes there is a phlips bolt right dead in the centre , you have to loosen this first,it might be a bit stiff,also be carefull not to undo it just loosen it ...
  16. yes i can see where your going with the heinkel and b29 nose windows so its more like the tie fighter would be a second world war plane influence
  17. I was watching the latest sky at night the other night and nearly spat my coffee out when showing the iss observation deck .....i thought ive seen that design somewhere before!wouldnt it be fantastic if space vehicles in the future resembled are favorite sci fi ships.....could we see a real xwing fighter or a star trek enterprise:D
