  7. Thanks for the pointers Starguest I'll have a little play again tonight and see how I get on. R.e. the the Dec control, yes the shaft goes all the way through giving you two end. Should I have a knob to go on each of them ?
  8. Hi all, I reieved my sparkling new SW200p and Eq5 mount yesterday I have it all built up and ready to rock but have a few questions. It says in the instructions to balance the scope at 20-30 degrees but it won't go below 30 ?? I have 3 places to put the push on knob/adjusters but only 2 knobs, is this right ? The controls are on the opposite side to the eyepiece, have I done something wrong ? Thanks Rich
