  1. Hi everyone, I have just bought an eq3 pro. I initially plugged it in and nothing happened so I brought the cigarette lighter adapter out to the car and it began to work. Just wondering is this how you charge it or do you have to leave it plugged in while you are using it? (Newbie here) Thanks a million
  2. I have broken Synscan HandContoller.I Use SkyWatcher EQ5GOTO. Inside handContoller ,Model "CELESTRON NXW215 REV.G" is printed on board. I found broken parts printed "C3" on board. What is this parts? I guess Same Parts "C4"(104C 23LN5)... Anyone have this board's photo? or Anyone knows what "C3"Parts is? Please Help.
  3. I have this fairly common dual axis hand controller that I use with an EQ5 mount. It provides tracking and some slewing albeit slowly and only apt for minor corrections. At some.point I wished if it would be possible to.make some modification that would allow faster slewing. I guess it has to do with changing the number of pulses sent to the motors each time the buttons are pressed/read. I wonder if someone has done or know about a simple way of doing it. Thanks in advance
  4. Hi, Selling my EQ5 mount complete with tripod and the enhanced dual axis motor drive. Purchased just under a year ago and in excellent condition. Mount has the polar scope and I have the two counter-weights. I would prefer collection but I have the original boxes so it could be well packaged if you wanted to arrange for a courier collection. Looking for £225 ( the mount was originally £239 and the dual axis kit was £110 ) Thanks for looking, Tim. Collection from Branston, Burton Upon Trent DE14 3GD.
  5. Hi, I have a 130p ds and a newly acquired EQ5. I use am Olly e pl1 which takes great terrestrial pictures but when attached to a scope or Ep (via t adapter) I always get slight trailing. The amount of trail is the same between 1 and 15 seconds (anything after that I would presume comes from celestial movement. The amount of trail is also only marginally better than I had using the EQ2 which makes me think there's movement in the camera (I use a timer when I take the pics). Do I need a new camera? A web cam isn't an option as I don't have the finds for a lap top. I don't want to spend my money on syncscan motors now if I'll still have this problem using this camera so what's the best used DSLR body I could buy. It would be used for Astro work only. Thanks
