  1. The place I went to is on my way to work. I just stopped for about 30 minutes in total. The place is the first place in Victoria Australia they found Gold. Ne'er spent the whole day there. It's just a spot I goto.try new things.
  2. I'm posting up some u-tube stuff that may help getting to know the Equinox 800.
  3. I updated today. Still a bit early to say if it done much. Will give it a go again as I only got to use it for half an hour today in a really trashy park.
  4. So I wanted to start this so that everything could be in one place when looking for help on the Equinox 800. I'm new to using any type of metal detector. I've only been at this for about four weeks with the Equinox 800. I'm only hunting in parks around my house. I'm finding coins and junk all the time. First tip I will give is get a good pin pointer. Helps with quicker recovery. So you can get to the next target quicker. Second is dig all your targets. What I have found is sometimes I think I'm going to dig up junk, it actually been a coin. So settings that I've been using is Park 1. The only thing I change from the factory settings is the sensitivity. I take this right up to 25, then back it down so that it runs smoothly. The first thing I do after turning the detector on is Noise Cancel followed by Ground Balance. I use the Auto Ground Balance then the Tracking Ground Balance. This works best for me as I am new to all of this. There might be better ways than what I've said, so I'm happy to listen to any advice and give it a go. Thanks Victor.
  5. Here's a picture of the coins I have found at some parks I have been to. Starting at the top the coins are $2 then $1 then 50 cents then 20 cents then 10 cents then 5 cents to the middle right of the photo are 2 cents and 1 cents All Australian coins. The bottom 3 coins on the right are a 1944 penny 1951 half penny Australian coins. and a New Zealand 2 cent. I'm much a newbie to this. I'm slowly getting confident using the Equinox 800. I don't have metal detecting experience with any other detector, but it your willing to read the instructions and watch as many u tube videos about the Equinox as you can. I'm sure anyone can pick it up and think it's a great detector to start with.
  6. Hi my name is Victor. I'm from Doreen in Victoria Australia. I'm new to metal detecting and have got myself a Equinox 800. lot's to learn, so any help would be great. Even Clubs that maybe are near me, or some good places to start looking. Thanks for letting me part of this Forum.
