    Wink hello everybody



    hello everybody,

    I have been interested in astronomy for a pretty long time. I really have only been only reading books but finally now I have gotten a 3 inch refractor. But, only problem is that I have a very unsturdy camera tripodion
    so I really cant get anything out of the sky. I cant really go on deep sky observing because of this iritating mount. I really do not have any complaints about the telescope itself it gives me nice veiws of space and the andromeda galaxy and ofcourse the orion nebula.

    sincerely,

    astro guy

    you can try using a sandbag of 0,5 or 1 kg to make the tripod more stable, i have done that in my DS-2130
