How to prevent slipping of CELESTRON 25×100

Recommended Posts

Enjoy myself with a 25*100, when the shy is not cloudy. When i point toward the zenith, the 2 optical tubes slip along the central axis.

Is anybody solved this problem ? and how ?

Thanks in advance

I have the 20 x 80 with the same fittings, you should be able to turn the very top (in the center of your red line) and lock it in place if this doesn't happen maybe try adding some thickness of tape until you find a better solution.

Hi Another solution is to put a small zip tie below the t-bar or a jubilee clip,
