  1. hi, I am unable to wind in the focus on my skywatcher 200 to achieve focus when a standard barlow is between tube and camera. I am seeking recommendations on a shorter version Barlow (with t ring) so that I can gain focus on Jupiter, Saturn on the camera. As far as I can see it would appear that longer barlows are around 5-6 inches and the shorter units are 2-3 inches. This reduced length would likely deliver the space I need to gain a focus. Appreciate any advice on others who've no doubt overcome this issue. Neil
  2. Hi there, This is one of my first posts and I'm in need of some advice please For the last 12 years I've been using a older Vixen 80m Refractor with a Super Polaris Equatorial mount both from the 1980'site. I've just been setting that up in the garden and spying on the Moon and Saturn and such. Recently I just bought myself a second hand but brand basically new OTA Sky-Watcher 200 P reflector with all varieties of eye pieces, Barlow lenses and accessories for a relative low price of £165. I was hoping that the scope would fit directly on top of my super polaris on the Dovetail bar. But the screws are only a few mm off and so I can't use the mount currently. I would like to get a new mount but not looking to spend toooo much money (up to £150) the only problem is I'm not sure which brand would be compatible and which type would be suitable to support the weight of a 200 P. Thanks for any advice, please be gentle!
