Hi Guys Does anybody know where is the best place to get replacement CG5 slow motion control knobs? My young son decided in his wisdom to start messing with my telescope and now one of the knobs has the metal ring inside missing meaning it no longer fits! So far I have found this; http://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/SkyWatcher_Slow_Motion_Cable_Set_EQ2_EQ5_AZ3.html Does anybody have any experience of using these? I want a like for like replacement but I can't find one online so I guess I would have to talk to Celestron/skywatcher if I did. However if these are better then I might as well get them. I also did a bit of reasearch prior to posting and come guy came up with using these. A bit left field I know! http://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/potentiometer-knobs/2597039/?searchTerm=259-7039&relevancy-data=636F3D3126696E3D4931384E525353746F636B4E756D6265724D504E266C753D656E266D6D3D6D61746368616C6C26706D3D5E5C647B337D5B5C732D2F255C2E5D5C647B332C347D2426706F3D313426736E3D592673743D52535F53544F434B5F4E554D424552267573743D3235392D373033392677633D4E4F4E4526 Any comments, help or advice most appreciated!
i wonder if anyone knows if spare springloaded knobs are available for finder brackets ?or is it a case of buying a whole bracket ? secondly, when i bought this s/h there were broken wires that i assumed were crosshairs at one stage. ive glued two thin pieces of wire to make new ones (although i was managing to use the finder without) but my question is ,do i need to get the crossover dead centre ? im pressuming not, as long as the hairs centre up with the main scope ? thanks in advance.
