Bolt for Skywatcher 200P EQ5 GOTO

Recommended Posts

Hi,

After a couple of years moving around the country, I've finally gotten myself settled enough to get the scope setup again.

The first problem I have is that one of the bolts from the tube clamp is missing. Below is a picture of the remaining bolt. Can anybody please advise the part number that I need, and the best place to source one?

Any help would be much appreciated, as I'm keen to get back out.

OR

Thanks. I have tried a couple of other suppliers, with no luck, and have now emailed the two you suggested.

Which bit have you lost, all of it ?

Can you take a picture of it unassembled with a size indication as similar things are available.

Hi. This is the bit I am missing. I've measured the thread with some vernier calipers, and I reckon it is 7.75mm. I was going to try a standard 8mm bolt if I couldn't find anything else.

Thanks to all.

I took a chance on a three quid bag of M8 bolts from Screwfix today, which seem to have done the trick.

Now to find out what else isn't working after 2 years in hibernation. 😁
