TESTING THE WATER
« on: February 26, 2015, 11:16:10 AM »
Testing the water here. I have a 10 Skywatcher  PDS Newtonian hardly used, on an NEQ6 pro mount. The power supply socket has been upgraded to a screw in type by Mike Chastney which frees up the original power input to power optional items in effect the input is now an output.

The secondary mirror also has bobs knobs fitted.

There is a finder and QHY5 camera finder-guider upgrade on a dual mount .
I have a Bhatinov mask also which is like new.

I have also upgraded the dovetail to an ADM. This set-up is imaging ready and guides like a sweetie. Oh forgot to mention - this also has the Gunnar mod...

Im thinking of going down the Dobsonian go-to route. Im willing to do a trade for a suitable scope, or open to reasonable offers.
