  8. Hi All, The base of my dob seems to have lost it's smooth running. I've unscrewed the central nut and had a look to make sure nothing is trapped in there but am at a loss as to what to do. Can anyone help me please as to the kind of maintenance I should be doing to keep everything running smoothly? Thanks. Phil.
  9. I left mine out last night and it was a tad wet this morning! I've done this before and just left it to dry, as said before, these mirrors have to be pretty filthy before needing a clean. Can I ask how you cleaned and dried it ? Phil.
