Hi everyone, I have run into a bit of a situation while moving house..my telescope made the trip but my finderscope and my 3 eye pieces were left behind and I only found out when getting ready to go out to a lovely clear sky and got stopped before I even got outside I'm devastated. But hears my question.

Do you think I would be better off buying a new finderscope and eyepieces for my skyliner 150p or selling my current scope and maybe buying a new skyliner or maybe even take this option for an upgrade...every cloud and all that...all replys greatly received

How about contacting the new house owner to see if they have your items, failing that get a new finder, a Telrad works well on a dob, plus start a new ep collection, have a look on astro buy an sell

I'd look around for a 2nd hand finder anyway (if you can't track down your old one). Even if you decide to move the scope on, it'll be a lot easier to sell if "complete". :)

Contacting the house owner isn't really an option :) maybe I will keep my eyes out for now as like you say would be easier to shift complete...maybe try and resist any idea of an upgrade as tempting as it is :D

Astroboot.co.uk would be worth a shout for a new finder/eyepieces.

Best of luck

Well the standard finder and eyepieces arent that great with the scope - get yourself a new finder or even just buy what you had already.  A right angle finder might be a boon with a dob.  The EPs are no great loss - You could always upgrade with something else - you can always use the EPs on the next scope you buy.

Not sure what finderscope you need, but there are often separate finderscopes for sale at Astrofest which will be coming up pretty soon.
