  1. pm incoming
  2. Stu did you get my pm? I've not heard from you.
  3. PM sent.
  4. I'm looking for a Tak LE 30mm if anyone has one they're willing to sell thanks.
  5. I'll take the Meade 40mm thanks.
  6. If you do sell the Taks I would be interested in both, especially the fs128. The Intes & one Tak would defo have to go if the choice was mine.
  7. Hi and welcome! Are you on the Derby side of the Peak District or the Staffordshire side?
  8. I don't think LZOS did any Lens' for the APM 80mm scopes unless they made the 80/600? I think it's most probably one of the Lomo Super Apo Triplet lens which went into the APM 80/480 scopes. Lomo stopped producing them so they are no longer available. They are also considered by many to be the best 80mm lens ever produced and are quite hard and pretty expensive to get hold of nowdays.
  9. Keep checking the corrector or eyepiece is not fogged up. Even with dew prevention they can still fog up especially if there's heavy dew.
  10. If you look closely at the edge of the prisms, especially on the left side of the binoviewer "back side" (last photo). You can clearly see the edge of the prism is now revealed by opening up to 25mm. What effect will this have on the overall image?
  11. Most probably when moved to the home position the mount should then be turned off otherwise it would keep tracking?
  12. Ahh what a pain for you! It's in the Setup menu on my LX200. The only other option I can think of is if the GPS connector in the fork arm isn't pushed into it's socket enough. It's happened in the past but as it's a new scope probably better to let your supplier sort the issue.
  13. The GPS is not in the Utilities menu it's in the Setup menu. Setup. Telescope. GPS alignment.
  14. The binoviewers in the photo are MKV's so no weak link there.
