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.
For sale - A well looked after immaculate condition Sky-Watcher Startravel 120 ota including tube rings/dovetail, 2" Sky-Watcher dielectric diagonal and 2" Baader Semi-Apo filter - £290.
There are the usual pock marks on the dovetail bar and a couple of scratches on the diagonal nosepiece caused by retention screws. The ota objective is dust free. Only selling due to a purchase of a 150mm newtonian, (the viewing position doesn't kick off my bad back) and I don't have storage space for three telescopes.
Brand new these items would cost in the region of £440.
I will consider splitting the items only if the package doesn't sell within a reasonable time.
Collection only from Liverpool. Payment via Paypal (buyer pays fees) or cash on collection.
Social distancing rules required.
PM if interested. Thanks for looking.
+ 2" to 1.25" draw tube adapter and end cap. There's also a 2" end cap no shown in the pics above.
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?
