  4. Hello telescope sages! I was out with my SW Equinox80 last night, which I bought mainly for looking at star fields and such like, and I noticed that having focussed on some stars overhead the drawtube would slip further out (even with the focussing knob locking cap in place). Certainly with the scope at 90* the focusser will let the drawtube out but it slips at certain points and then doesn't draw it back in. It is fine whiile horizontal (!!) or maybe up to about 45* tilt and works as nature intended. I have only attached a diagonal and an eyepiece (I've never attached anything more than EP, diagonal and barlow at any one time). The focusser certainly wouldn't work I'm sure with something like camera attached. Am I doing something wrong? Or am I overlooking something? The drawtube stabilises and stays rigid when the locking screw beneath the focusser is tightened but then you have to loosen the screw when changing EPs to refocus and the drawtube then slips. I've had the scope about 10 months and can't recall it behaving like this before. Any words of wisdom most welcome! Thanks
