Quote: To allow fast switching, I picked up some 8-32 1/4" brass thumbscrews from Jim at Scopestuff to swap out in place of one allen screw on each shaft (see picture).
Quote:Yes, they're 1/4" Fred. I had the same problem when I first looked at the page. But if you look long enough at the brass thumbscrew list they'll pop out; perhaps averted vision is needed.

Quote:Quote:I am going to get the motors. Do they add much weight to the mount? I guess they weigh a pound or two but I didn't really notice any difference when lifting the entire mount. Adding the velcro keeps the HC from swinging around when you move the mount so you will want to do that.
