  9. Hallo Gina, I have been following your Post for quite a while now , and I,am enjoying your work.. rejoined the Forum again, after a year, too much work.. now managed to set up my equipment, with a few changes made which helped me a lot.. Regarding the problem you have with Phd, I also had the same... I noticed on your beautiful mount that your bolts between the bottom plates and the top one , they are too long. I changed the length of mine down a bit, and that solved my problem .. At that length, they cause a lot of vibration... especially with a lot of weight on top.. Just a thought, hope the weather gets better over there, here is more or less the same.. Regards John
  10. Hi folks, After a short break, looking forward to your help & comments. The astronomy Bug has come through again.. Regards John
