  1. Hah, no thanks! Is there a way to correct this without cutting up my scope?
  2. I've recently gotten a new Skywatcher 200pds and whilst testing it out i noticed this weird 'flare' around the star. My best guess is that it is something to do with collumation and because this is my first newtonian im new to this process. I don't know how to get rid of it. Anyone know and can help? Thanks
  3. Ok, i'll make sure to keep the engine running (sorry enviroment). Thanks
  4. Hi there :) Im a bit confused on whether or not i can plug my mount straight into the 12V cigarette lighter in my car. I use a Skywatcher HEQ5 pro. I need to travel away from home to observe an ISS lunar transit so i won't be able to use the mains powersupply that i normally use. Im thinking i could use the 12V plug that is supplied with the mount for this. Is it safe to do this? I don't want to try it in fear of damaging my mount. Hope you can help me out :)
