  8. Hi Ed and James, thanks for the replies. I've just watched a video on youtube and I think your right in that it is just a snug fit as there is nothing shown on the stripdown video that could be catching on anything. I will have another go, just didn't wont to damage anything. Thanks again for the help guys.
  9. Hi all, I'm looking for a bit of advice concerning my ST 8O. I've ordered a set of tube rings for it so that I can turn the OTA when it's mounted on my EQ1 mount but I'm having a problem getting the mounting plate off the tube itself. I expected to just have to undo the two fixing screws on the plate and it would come off but when I loosen these the screws just keep turning, which suggests to me that there are nuts behind these screws which are loose and these are spinning when I loosen the fixing screws. My next thought was that you must have to take the black rear focusing assembly off there
