  9. Hi All. First I must apologise to skywatcher because in fact the stock focuser on a 200P is not a rack and pinion at all but a single speed Crayford focuser, so with that in mind I have plumbed for two options either the skywatcher low profile dual speed focuser or do some work on the stock focuser as shown on you tube and then buy a lacerta dual speed 1:10 microfocus upgrade kit.
  10. Thanks for the reply mikeyJ1, I really don't fancy re-drilling holes in my OTA, the other reason I picked these two focusers is, I have a Crayford on my skywatcher 180 MAK with a motor drive and depending on which scope I use I can swop the motor drive from one to the other.
  11. Hi all. I'm thinking of changing my rack and pinion focuser on my skywatcher 200p, I have two in mind which are, Dual-speed low profile 1.25"/ 2" Crayford and Dual-speed Crayford 1.25/ 2" for skywatcher explorer, bearing in mind I will be attaching a Cannon DSLR to it. Apparently according to FLO they are both a direct fit and the prices are not to far apart for either of the focusers.
  12. I have a Vixen Super Polari's mount which carries an Astro systems 150mm Newtonian reflector, I bought them both back in the early eighties, the last time I used them was a couple of years ago, the motors still worked and the scope gave stunning view's, I was wondering about the polar scope because if I remember when you looked through the polar scope the reticule had the year next to it or it was in the manual and as the years went by you had to alter the mount so Polaris was a little bit away from the reticule. My question is can I fit a newer polar scope. Cheers Keith
  13. I would also like to add my thanks to the team who organized the event and to FLO for the Marquee it bought every body together, and a big thanks to Lucksall not only for more or less taking over the campsite but for providing the bar in the Marquee.
  14. Hi all I have a Skywatcher 180 mak and I want a better focuser, I was thinking the Skywatcher duel speed 2 inch Crayfod sct , Will this fit also can I attach a Skywatcher auto focused to it. Keith (Thommo10)
