Those good people at FLO have kindly sent me my new baby... an Esprit 100ED! OK, I had to swap it for some of the 'money' stuff but it was certainly worth it!!
Just need the custom CCD adapter and some clear skies and then we're good to go!
Here's a couple of pics - there'll be more when it's installed in the obsy!
Greetings to all
I have a question regarding the placement of small compasses on scopes like the skywatcher virtuoso. By the way great little grab and go scope I'm having the best time with this little scope.
In the photo I;m including they have the small provided compass sitting on the bottom clutch lock. When I put this on the clutch lock it doesn't seem to point north would it be getting from the motors bellow or is this the right location??
Don't know if anyone can help but I'm trying to find where I can get a snapshot lead that will fit the bottom of the Skywatcher Synscan GoTo hand controller and a canon camera or a pin out list to make one myself? There's plenty available that will fit the sockets on their newer mount but I can't find anything to fit the hand controller. Thanks in advance.
