Quote:I haven't yet figured out whether the azimuth tension will be as easy to adjust, but the way it's currently set seems to be just fine.

Quote:But now I've decided that I really need a handle for my DM-6, so I'll probably be emailing you anyway in a few days.Best regards,
Quote:Hi Mark, thanks for your input on the handles. Can you slew to the zenith without the handle hitting the tripod? And if so, what type of tripod are you using? (I've got the standard height DiscMounts wooden tripod.)
My little Agatha. You left too soon. My furry friends, past and present, are always with me.
Quote:Hi Scott,Hopefully your DM-6 came with the Discmounts saddle that is drilled for the handle, because I know that some have put ADM saddles on which would need to be drilled for the handle.
