    So here is my polar scope with the bubble level collar removed. The red screws only appear to be for removing the eyepeice, or at least when i loosen them the whole scope doesnt go "loose". The green ones dont appear to be screws at all and none of my drivers will work with them.

    right so i have it sorted! the ones in red were the correct ones, the polar scope is just a little bit tight in the hole. Waldemar - the scope needed taking out so i could fix the focus issue, my polar grid was in focus when the stars were out of focus. I have now sorted this out by making a small adjustment to the polar scopes focus point. And who'd have thought - its set to be clear sky tonight!


    Thanks all and clear skies!

    may i ask what you did to correct the focus? My PS isnt that clear either. My Star could be more in focus !
