my names Matt and I live in Sawmills. I don't drive but would like to join an astronomy group to learn more.
i just wondered if I can join your group and what I would need to do?
Where do you meet for example and when?
Ive been observing for 2 years now but am still very much a newbie.
i went round to Martyn's last week and he had an extension tube for a eq6 tripod. He said you made it.
Im after one for me to be made for my az eq5. Skywatchers do make them but they are only 16cm tall, that just isn't enough for me. I'm after one similar to the heq5 extension tube which is 16 inches tall. I have heard that the heq5 tripod is the same as the standard tripod for the az eq5 and if it were I would buy that extension. But Rother valley optics have asked skywatcher and they have said the extension tube would not fit my mount. So hear I am asking if you could make me one and how much would you charge?
i suppose I should ask on the forum if I could try my mount on someones eq5 tripod and if it fits then I would know if the SW extension would fit my pier for certain.
