Brian Even a broken clock is correct twice a day
Quote:If the telescope is top heavy, 1/4" or 6mm pieces of steel flat bar drilled to fit on the top rung will balance the telescope, once you replace the bolts with ones long enough to hold them in place. If it's bottom heavy, you just need to add mere ounces to the UTA.
