  19. Thank you all very much. I read somewhere that the hole in the end cap is for assisting in solar viewing....is this right?? But solar film is the way forward i see clearly(without filters ) I have thought of another scope so maybe i'll go far a smaller one for this. My scope is the full tube PDS by the way Gaz
  20. Just a little update.......decided to get the long+lat bolts adjusted whilst i was waiting so asked a good friend on mine if he could do anything with them(no he didn'y put them in the bin!!!)....but this is what he has done........i suggested he could market the idea!! I think they look pretty smart. Was just a case of using the old bolt but machining a 'better' and 'easier' adjustment knob. Need the snow to do one now so i can 'attempt' polar alignment and get started!!!!! Most likely be June now!!
