  6. Hand Controller

    Thank you all.
  7. If I find that an obstacle (tree etc) will obscure my view through my telescope whilst slewing to an object, can I stop/cancel the goto function in mid slew? At present if I find the target object might be obscured I have to input another target; I would rather cancel and have time to think about my next target. What button do I press to stop the slew on my Celestron CPC800 hand controller?

  12. Desiccant Caps

    I keep mine on all the time when my scope is in storage (just remember to refresh the gel beads at regular intervals). I've got this type - https://www.firstlightoptics.com/dew-prevention/flo-125-2-inch-desiccant-cap.html The only problem I've encountered with this cap is that my Baader 'click-lock' doesn't fasten around the 2" part of the desiccant cap because the cap is not deep enough. So I have to put a 2"-1.25" adapter on. If you are using a different designed cap or the 1.25mm part of this cap then they are great.
