I've made a video on how to setup an equatorial mount.
Hope this is useful, tips are welcome!
2 sets of Losmandy dovetail rings for sale.
As per the link here - http://www.losmandy.com/index.html
These are the D series ring systems, closest I can find are these references below, mine were bought approx 8 - 9 years ago -
Both in excellent condition with only minor scratches and wear marks visible. These are truly great quality pieces of equipment, ideal for mounting small defectors on top of your SCT.
£65 ono for the pair of small rings, postage and packing included
£75 ono for the pair of larger rings, postage and packing included
I also have a losmandy plate for the Celestron C8, fits all Celestron 8 inch OTA's including CPC and HD scopes, unfortunately no riser blocks with the plate.
£30 ono for the plate, postage and packing included
Paypal and bank transfer welcome.
Thanks for looking,
This was bought new back in 2014. It was used for a short time in our observatory before we decided to get a Mesu 200 in late 2015. Following that, it received little use – we would occasionally get it out for visual work. Further purchases have meant that the CGEM is now not being used at all, and it is time to shift it on.
The CGEM is, in most respects, equivalent to an EQ6, although you should be aware that it cannot be used with EQMOD. It comes with the original tripod and a 17 lb counterweight (as shown in the photo). It comes with the 12V cigar plug power cable.
• Payload Capacity: 40 lb (18.14 kg) – visual
• Computer Hand Control: Double line, 16 character Liquid Crystal Display
• 40,000 object database with over 100 user-definable objects and expanded information on over 200 objects
I kept the original foam for storing the mount, but the original box has gone. The total weight of the package is not far short of 80 lbs. I don’t know how much it would cost to ship (or quite how I would ship it), so I think collection would be required. I don’t mind driving a reasonable distance to deliver or exchange (maybe we could meet half way).
Note that I am also separately selling a Sky Q Link which works with this mount and enables you to control it using an IOS or Android device.
The mount is also for sale on UK ABS
I am looking for a Losmandy D dovetail bar, long enough, and with the correct hole spacing, to attach two Takahashi clamshell clamps for holding my DL.
I know there are bars that are long enough for 1 clamp, but have not found any with length and drillings for 2 clamps end to end.
UK/EU preferred, but anywhere known is welcome.
Having a bit of a clear out.
