DIY Equatorial Mount
Posted 08 October 2012 - 08:18 AM
I would like to try my hand at an equatorial mount but I know very little about them.
Can you point me at a book about DIY equatorials? Similar to "The Dobsonian Telescope" by Kriege & Berry.

I'm thinking of building one for my 8-inch--I'd keep the rotating-tube-in-a-box feature from the original starsplitter dob, and build the mount around that.
