    Default Woot I got GEM figured out!!!



    So tonight I just figured how to set my EQ mount up and move it to where I want. I am so pumped up now all i gotta do is wait for my laser collimator and anyone know how to fix budget mount syndrome? As in when i move it to an object it tends to move back a little in the direction i moved it from?


    P.S I also have a Zhumell Z8 in the mail should be here friday. Long story there lol
