  1. I've been a skyliner 200p owner for nearly a week and i'm after advice about which eyepiece to purchase. At the moment i only have the standard skywatcher 10mm and 25mm ep's Currently i'm only looking at the moon, jupiter and saturn and general star hopping. I'm not really sure what i'm after but i've got an idea that a good 6mm is what i'm after. I'm in an excellent area which has very little light pollution. Please advise about ep's and maybe a barlow, budget is about £50 but could stretch a little bit. Thanks
  2. Thanks everyone for your comments, i've had two relatively clear nights and i'm impressed already. i'm not sure if its a new 10ish mm eyepiece i need or new focuser. i think i'll go for a new 10mm ep first as the standard ep are not really rated as a quality product. I think the focuser to down to operator error. Any suggestions for ep's? a dew shield is a job i can do anytime. Any suggestions how deep i should make it.( i think i,ve read somewhere 1.5 x apperture)? raci to follow on next payday.
  3. Thanks for that. Thats some list of bit and bobs you've got. Yes i'm jealous
  4. Thankfully i do live on the other side of the country, actually only 8 miles away from seller. And he was a true gentleman. Deal done!!!!
  5. Thanks for the calm down call. second-hand decent 10mm second-hand decent 2 x barlow collimator is a deffo (not sure if laser one, or not)
  6. Yeah a real result. 2years old, immaculate, 1/2 price So i've got a little spare cash for goodies. I think a new eyepeice and a 2 x barlow for starters. Any ideas? Thanks
  7. I'm relatively new to all this so, be gentle. I've been trying to decide which scope to invest in. I had all but parted with the cash for a 200P on an eq5, then suddenly a 200p dob came up at the right price and in the right place. Can't wait to get out there and can you believe it, clear skies. What would you all advise as the little things that will improve my viewing (flock the tube, fan, new eyepeices) Is there anything else a can improve on? Am i correct in thinking that i could put this could be put on a eq5 at a later date?
  8. I know i'm new to astronomy but i can find the 4 galilean moons of jupiter with 15x70 binos, but can't find the for sale section. D'oh
