the steel top has three positions where the, can't think of name, bit of metal that you move the head around against via the two black knobs can go. When you loosen the bolt that goes into the bottom of the head, then you can move position.

Fay if I didn't now what you were talking abut I would have said you had lost it... :-) I'm guessing explaining things was never your strong point... :-) :-) :-)

Well I'd say that was a perfectly normal non technical description, not a gangly pin or frip sprocket in sight   :o

Looks like you've done a really good job there Fay (John!) I hope it's pointing due north.  Mind you if it isn't then you could always twist the concrete base around till it was  ;)

Fay,

That is one really impressive cloud generator.  The effect has been dramatic!

I'm pretty certain since you added all that weight that it has started to lean slightly. There is a subtle tilt there.

Darn! It's usualy our job to persuade Fay to go out and buy stuff... I've been looking at these piers for a while now, and to see Fay's whopper in the garden she had gone and done it to me this time. Order placed for an AE pier. Just hope I can dig the pit without going thru our pipe that feeds the septic tank.

Paul, make sure it's level won't you. Don't want it to end up like Fay's  :o

Gotta love those Lego animations. A project for next DSC do you think? A bit of stop motion animation?

Good point. Fay will realise her mistake when she tries to take images with this set-up. Make sure you don't do the same Paul.

Where did you get the plate to mount your eq6 on?

Only im thinking of scrapping the LX200, removing the OTA and just using it with the EQ6.

So there might be a Meade Mega wedge for sale soon (Duncan)

Might strip out the GPS unit though and mod the EQ6 with it.
