  1. you should have had a 2" adapter and a 1.25 adapter with the scope, it is a common mistake to have both fitted at the same time which will cause a problem with focus. if you have only the 1.25 adapter in place and have this problem, you will need to contact the supplier I think martin
  2. You need either the 2" or the 1.25" adapter fitted, not both Richard martin
  3. You can change the slewing speed by selecting the rate button on the handset and then pressing a key between 1 and 9, 9 is the fastest and 1 the slowest, this will not effect the tracking rate that the scope tracks the target Martin

  12. I made mine 14x7 and put in a divider in the middle, so ended up with 2x7x7, this gives ample room for scope and a nice sized warm room, the warm room roof is fixed, and the obs roof rolls over it. Martin
