Hi there.

Would you sell the  StarSharp Bahtinov Mask separate?
If it has the screws and all that so it attaches to the OTA, I'd be interested.
Could paypal or bank transfer the money to you, if you add on say the cost of postage too. :)

Ideally I'd have sold it all together, but I can sell both the Bahtinov mask and Geoptik bag separately I suppose :)

I'll have to measure the mask and see how much P&P will be for you @Hailfire101.

Are you in the area @Spaceboy & able to collect the Geoptik bag?

Send me a PM if you like and we'll go from there?

Hi, I'm rather interested in your OTA, but can't collect. Would you consider posting it? I had a quick look and some courier services aren't that expensive. I'm abroad ATM but I have an address in London area where it could be delivered.

      I have been attempting to update my SynScan V3 Hand Controller from V3.08 to latest version. Handset bootloader is V1.7.
      Unfortunately I just get the message “Can not connect to SynScan hand control”. I have looked at numerous forums and tried everything that has been suggested (including older versions of firmware installer), but getting nowhere.
      I am using a Skywatcher SynScan USB Adapter (purchased from Bristol Cameras) and installed the driver from the Skywatcher website. The adapter shows in the COM ports and says it is working properly.
      I have tried different computers (Win10 and XP) with no joy.
      Can anyone help, or is there anyone in North Aberdeenshire that has successfully updated their handset willing to give mine a go (once travel restrictions, etc ease)?

      The first two photos were taken using my BST StarGuider 3.2mm ED EP. The middle one was using a 25mm MA EP. The last two were taking with a 10mm MA EP. 
      I was just holding the phone to the eyepiece, using the zoom and exposure compensation. I have no control of the ISO with this phone, even using the Open Camera app.

      Hi! I'm very new to astronomy and have ordered a SkyWatcher StarQuest 130p as my first telescope, which arrives soon. As I understand it the tripod is the biggest weak link in the setup. Is it possible for me to buy a replacement, better tripod to improve my viewing experience overall?
      Apart from the tripod what would you recommend upgrading?

      I am trying to setup the Skywatcher MC 102/1300 SkyMax BD AZ-S GoTo telescope+mount.
      What I did:
      Start from parking mode. The telescope is aligned to north. Turned it on and aligned with 2 stars. During the alignment the tracking is turning on all the time and moving the telescope position. Then when I try to go to some star the north/south motion never ends. While the East/West motion stops at right location. This is really wild to me. Can someone help with understanding what is the problem ?
