You may have seen that a 28lb box containing my new mount was delivered to work last Thursday direct from Austin, Texas in the thread: 'UK 'astronomer' spots another 'Nova'...' So added below are the now customary SGL 'un-boxing' shots of my new baby.... On Saturday I had chance to try out the Tak and get my head around the Half Hitch Telescope 'two axis balance' philosophy, see: http://www.halfhitchtelescope.com/two-axis%20balancing.htm More shots to follow in due course....

Hello everyone, I am having trouble with the settings of my Orion Intelliscope system. I am supposed to calibrate the intelliscope with 2 stars distant from at least 60 degrees. Could someone tell me if the 2 stars I am using (Procyon & Aldebaran) are at least 60 degrees apart from eachother? Using the fist/finger way of measuring seems to me that they are just over 60 degrees. I am having wrap errors of 3.4 so that is quite a lot. Maybe another issue is that my balcony is not totally flat. Thanks for your confirmation. Scotlandyard
