  1. Didn't work for me Solved my problem with a packet of dark light (available from FLO, I understand)
  2. Hi there, Petrol Pete Thanks for your comments - very helpful... One question: apart from the visible trails, why do you feel many would laugh at your images? You say you get plenty of detail. I'm trying to establish how far I can push the combination of 200P and upgraded EQ5 with regard to basic astro-photography. Steve
  3. Thanks for your input. I am considering my financial strategy!!!!
  4. Hi E621Keith Thanks for your comments. It looks like motorizing the EQ5 is not a problem using the upgrade kit. However, I'm going to need to factor in the potential difficulties of using this setup for astro-imaging. Depends how desperate I get and how friendly my bank manager feels!
  5. Hi Astro Baby Thanks for your comments. It looks like motorizing the EQ5 is not a problem using the upgrade kit. However, I'm going to need to factor in the potential difficulties of using this setup for astro-imaging. Depends how desparate I get and how friendly my bank manager feels!
  6. Thanks, Black Knight. Sounds like: "Works OK up to a point", if I read you right.
  7. Anyone out there who has tried imaging using the SynScan PRO GOTO Version 3 Upgrade Kit for EQ5 mount? I would be very interested to here your experiences...... ................... Skywatcher Explorer 200P EQ5 (bog standard)
  8. Hi 3621Keith Thanks for sharing your experience - very useful, especially your comment re imaging.
  9. Hi humans Dumb newbie query for you..... Am now the proud owner of a Skywatcher Explorer 200P EQ5!! Have had fun on the few nights I've had available to me so far, but I'm very keen to upgrade the mount, with the aim of motorising/computerising the system and starting astro-imaging in the longer term . I've read a couple of threads in the forums, and it looks like I should go for a SynScan GoTo upgrade. Anyone have any further thoughts before I put my hand in my pocket? TIA
