Re: Mystery part on equatorial mount
Well, more information would be helpful. I am assuming you don't have an owner's manual?
Can you supply a model number from the scope?
Sorry, I see an answer already.
Jan 2014, an old Celestron Firstscope 114 reflector followed me home from the thrift store, in serious need of care & repair...That started an addiction of sorts. My most recent purchase: A 12" F5 steel tube, beater Dob.
In between, I bought...more...stuff. Errors using my beaters seems less painful. With luck, I would like to push some glass soon. I have the requirements in hand now. An observatory would be the best change if I could somehow manage it. As for me: "Getting old sucks."
