Just realised all they eyepieces are in the plastic covers :lol:
I don't leave them around the scope (although Ive just made a little table to hold 5 of them,that will fit under the scope)

Never thought of the FL changing due to focusing,a new one on me :shock: :)

I live and learn :)

I was lucky when I bought my scope the bloke at Rother Valley Optics had already tested it and put all the info Id need into the autostar handset,so all I really had to do was switch on and go :)
