SkyWatcher Skyliner 250 PX 10" Dobsonian Telescope. This telescope needs a new home as I have used it very little, having become more interested in astrophotography rather than observing. In good condition with base modified with lazy Susan bearing, angle scale with pointer and bubble level, Machine-Dro digital RA angle gauge (needs new battery) to complement the scale on the base. Also included is a sturdy plywood base with adjustable feet to stand the telescope on so it can be leveled easily. Two eyepieces are included...10mm and 25mm. No finderscope is included, but these are readily available. There are a couple of small smudges on the mirror (see photo) but I expect these will wash off easily and don't affect performance. Focus wheel rubber grips have split, but operation is not affected. Collection only due to size from Swindon or possibly Abingdon in office hours. £225 Thanks for looking.
Hi guys, I have Skywatcher DOB 250 Flexitube GOTO and recently noticed HD webcam in my friend's place... (AUSDOM AW615 1080P Full HD 12.0M USB2.0) So I received it for few of beers and managed to place it into 1.25' EP holder without any struggle. I haven't removed any filters from webcam, just wanted to see if it will fit in and it did, so I was really happy, but... (unfortunately word "but" always comes after word "happy"), but... the only thing I can see on the screen is my Primary and Secondary mirrors I think, this webcam would be perfect for collimation however, what to do next? I want to see something more than just mirrors, - Moon and Jupiter maybe... I tried to attach 2'' adaptor which comes by default with the telescope to increase the distance between mirrors and webcam... the result is the same. I also used flexitube ability to shorten the tube and reduce Focal length, - no result, just the size of the image is different. Should I try Barlow?
