  2. thanks guys for your help this is way beyond me so decided to sell it I like to surf the skies and stargaze through the binoculars this is way to much messing about for me
  3. hi ronin thank you for getting back to me so prompt, yes it is a goto, sorry I should have put that, o/h will go out and set it up for me no so problem there as for the cost I will sell his 200p dob to get the money for anything I need lol
  4. hi all hope I have put this in the right thread,if not sorry mods..... o/h bought me a Skywatcher Heritage 114P Virtuoso Telescope last christmas but it is still in it's box unopened. I am thinking of getting it out this winter to see the night sky for the first time, but I don't want to sit in the garden with it, due to health and back problems my question is can I buy some kind of lead that I can connect it to the lap top? so I can use it indoors, and is they anything else I will be needing? thank you
  5. ALL THE Best for 2014 Plenty of dark clear skies to come hopefully Chez/Malc
  6. well guys not long now ;o) winter is coming looking forward to dark,crisp winter nights and clear skies and trying out my new telescope o/h bought me for my birthday in June not been out of the box yet ;o( Chez
