  1. I am thinking of buying the 104 myself, but I would love to see some feedback first,
  2. which straight through finder scope will fit to the 104mm scope?
  3. Thanks everyone. ordered and on route,
  4. Thanks, I will order tonight, probably better just do it now as Il more than likely want to go fiddling with it at some point, Clear skies
  5. Collination was only very slightly out, so of coarse I had to go at it, after the screw driver spun on two of the screws, collination ended up haywire, then I ended up haywire, and on top of all this the rain came pouring down, what a night, any way I struggled with the screws but got back to very close perfection, I think, so my question is this, if I install the knobs FLO has will the collination be way off and will it be a nightmare to collimate the scope after? or should i leave well enough alone, its 925 sct Thanks Derek
  6. Thanks for the replys everyone, I will play with the distance between the reducer and chip and see what happens
  7. im imaging with a celestron 925 and a Canon 6D, im getting really bad vignetting when using the Celestron focal reducer, I thought it maybe the full frame camera causing it, but I tried a crop sensor lastnight and Im getting the same result, It seems fine when I remove the reducer, so does anyone know is their something I can use to fix this, a different reducer of something else that will correct it, and let me still use the reducer Thanks Derek
  8. does anyone know if a 2" filter will thread into a celestron 6.3 reducer/corrector ? cheers
  9. thanks, I have the instructions,, but still no good,
  10. I got it in November, only a few months ago, tis a disaster, ill got it from FLO, ill ask them what they thing, a long shot id say, ill probably contact starlight and see
  11. ive tried this, but the problem is I cant separate the focuser unit from the nut or stop nut, I put a spanner on the stop and try and lossen it, but it just spins around, its like the focuser wheel is not doing any thing, its a real mess
  12. ahh, I didn't explain it properly, sorry, its the starlight micro focuser, not the supplied one that came with it
  13. thanks for the reply, I have the focuser wind back all the way until it stops, how do I remove the outside sleeve?
  14. anybody? the focuser isn't working, and I duno how ill get it off the scope any help or advice would be very welcome
