Skywatcher products have a five year warranty, so how can it be nearly new,
unless you mean physically rather than chronologically? I believe the warranty is transferable, should you not be the original purchaser.

Hi Wendo,
Welcome to IceInSpace

WOW!
You are
Quote:
completely new to all of this and am about to get a Williams FLT98 HEQ5 Pro, Williams zenith star 70 SW AZ4 Mount
and you have a 14 inch Skywatcher Collapsible GoTo Dobsonian.

That is a strange combination of statements.

But ... YES.
I have the instructions to adjust the Skywatcher Dob clutches (alt and Az).

However, it is too big to post on this forum (file size restrictions).

So PM me with you email address and I will send the file to you.

But NOTE: this is not a skywatcher document, may invalidate any warranty, and all work is carried out at your own risk.

However, I have done the adjustment on two different SW Dobs, and they work.

Offer open to anyone else who wants the file too of course.

Well it hasn't been used due to travel; in fact only used 3 times prior and being out of country for quite a while but from that perspective its as new, but yes out of warranty in this case
