  1. I agree with Peter, the AZ4 is a good sturdy mount but I prefer the AZ5 because of the slo mo controls.
  2. Happy birthday Adam, enjoy your cake
  3. Posted this on diy observatories by mistake. I am not very keen on motor focusers that are not able to operate manually so I came up with an idea using a timing belt that could simply be slipped off to allow manual use. One for my Dob and one for my ST120.
  4. I got the motor and the controller from that well known river

  6. I am sure there is an article somewhere that shows how to make your own. Try searching for diy parallelogram Mount.

    Hello again

    Welcome back to SGL.
  9. Welcome to SGL. Sorry to hear about your mishap but I don’t think you will ever do that again.
  10. Welcome back to SGL.
  11. I am not in to photography but I am fairly sure that photographic tripods have a 1/4” fitting and telescope tripods have a 3/8” fitting. You can obtain adapters for a pound or so which would enable you to use the photographic tripod with your AZ mount.
  12. The AZ3 mount and tripod are not really suitable for using the adaptor you are looking at. The adaptor you are looking at is for use on the steel legged EQ tripod tripod. I have an AZ3 mount and rarely use it because I bought the 3/8" stainless steel tripod which will take most AZ mounts without the need for adaptors and is significantly more solid.
  13. Hi Steve, welcome to SGL.
