manual dob control ideas


Recommended Posts

hi to all. has anyone any ideas for making manual controls for a dobsonian 8 in scope setup. simpler the better. i have a diy dob mount, so can chop and change, hack it up, do almost anything to alter it. could even burn it and make a new 1. i have a simple system that works quite well for the az but am a bit stumped for the alt. all help and advice greatly appreciated. maybe need a box of matches lol. alt system is in the pic. very simple theres a spring in the bottom block keeps a bit of tension on it. this can still be improved and tidied up a bit, but works. thanks in advance for any help and input. paul.
