    Hello everyone this is off my spare everyday use telescope which is a skywatcher 130pm reflector with an eq 21 equatorial mount

    i have a tracker as you can see with it .

    i was out on an excursion a few weeks back and noticed my scope isnt tracking and have noticed a part missing.

    i'm really struggling finding parts for it

    i live in north west England and willing to travel to the right place

    i do hope anyone can help as i'm no good with finding good online dealers.

    thank you so much for reading and taking the time out for this .

    That's a tough one. That would appear to be a Skywatcher EQ2 drive. The part that fell off is the drive gear. All I can suggest is contacting Skywatcher directly to see if they can supply that one gear. Would be a shame to have to replace the whole unit for that one part. Let us know how you make out.
