My G-11 has a bunch of slop in it. Any recomendations as to a fix? It seems to be only in the declination axis.
Thanks in advance.

Lots of Losmandy G11 tuning guides exist on the Internet - Google is your friend, really ;)

This post right here contains several links. Not sure if they are all up to date but take a look. Losmany design is based on the concept you can do your own rebuilds or go to a local machine shop and get something made and bolt it on. Thats what Scott always said. Joe

Thanks, I'll look for a web page with this info. It seems like I just have a screw loose (no comments). Would that be just great, drop my new scope of the concrete driveway because a 5 cent screw is loose!
