  1. Thanks for the response. The other side is a different style cap unfortunately
  2. Hi all, First time taking the Binoculars out tonight and I lost the end cap for the centre bolt/thread. (See photo) They are Pentax SP 8x40 I have had a quick look on google and can’t find spare parts anywhere. Can anyone offer some advice on where to find it?Thanks in advance
  3. Wanted - Wanted - Skywatcher skyliner 250p / 300p flextube with goto Located in North Wales but willing to travel when Covid restrictions allow. Many thanks in advance
  4. Thanks. The tube fouls on the tripod now as it is so could be even worse then. It’s a shame that I won’t be able to use the phone and starsense app with other larger scopes
  5. Hello all, We currently have a Celestron Starsense explorer 130DX. The mount provided has a mount which you can use the starsense mobile app for navigating the stars which is brilliant! My question is would I be able to upgrade the scope for example buy an 8” Reflector and put it on the same mount? Would the mount supplied be able to handle a bigger scope? I want to be able to continue to use the starsense mobile app you see. Many thanks
  6. Are you sure they were genuine items?
  7. I’ve been searching on google for some eyepieces and some of them are coming up for really great prices on Ali Express. Seems a bit suspect to me. Anyone have any experience using them? Thanks all
  8. Hi all, We have just subscribed to BBC Sky at night for 3 months at a cost of £5 on offer. In the first magazine is a further offer of 24 months for the price of 12 (£52.80). Seems like a great price to me. The offer says expires 28th Feb. My question is do I need to rush into this or is this offer available in all the issues/all of the time? I’m hoping there are some regular readers out there who may know. Thanks
  9. Hello all, Been looking at entry level eyepieces for a few weeks. I am sick to death of looking at them now and need to go for it! Our scope is a 5” reflector f/5. There is a potential I will be moving for a larger reflector in the next year or two maybe 10 or even 12” so some continuity in use of the eyepiece would be helpful! I am looking at entry level eyepieces for around the £40-£80 mark. I have whittled it down to what seems to be a forum favourite the BST starguiders and the Baader Classic Series Ortho. If anyone has any tips or advice it would be greatly apprecia
  10. Is it just a case of it’s a cheap supplied focuser and an upgrade would be better?
