  1. Beginner Scope

    Another vote for the 8"dobsonion. A fabulous scope.will show you some fantastic views.and simple to use.IMHO.
  2. Slowmotion control

    They slide past each other. Hope this helps.I too cannot find the YouTube video now.it is a simple idea .and not to difficult to make.I did put pics up about how I made the slow motion controls in diy astronamy section whilst.I was making it.
  3. Slowmotion control

    I will try to explain. The wooden center section has 2 separate holes.which the 2 metal rods go into.the lower rod is a plain rod.and is used for large adjustments with a locking knob.the upper rod is threaded.with a handwheel for fine adjustments.this a basic explanation. Hope it help you understand.

    It has no issues .very smooth and very fine adjustments. So much better than nudging .it very easy to build.compared to the commercially available setup.
