Recommended Posts

This happened last night when packing up after a great observing session.

This is my SW 130p alt az GoTo mount

Superglue didn't work. Any suggestions? I can't see this tripod section of the mount available for sale on its own anywhere. Would I have to replace the whole GoTo mount??

Both Celestron & Skywatcher are owned by Synta and their scopes are generally made in the same place, so I would think they were the same. You could always ask the seller.

I don't think glue will work because it will be in direct tension. I'd just make a thin metal strap bolted to the spreader and passing around the leg under the nylon part that is still around it.
