Quote:Thanks, Carol. I like to tweak with my astro stuff to optimize the performance of them. In my photo, the wall panel with two posts showing is the back wall of the POD, and that is the rear seam of the dome, not the pivot joint. Wayne is correct in saying the dome needs to be parked with the pivots joints over the wall seams, Like this: http://carolstargazing.shutterfly.com/96 , other wise the wall panels will be stressed. I am careful to always follow Wayne's advise on that issue, and I have form the day I got my POD. I love the material this thing is made of. It can take almost anything!I have the "Visor" too, and I love that feature..it keeps the wind off of me and my neighbors lights out of my eyepiece, and keeps me warm in the winter! It adds a little more weight to the dome and that might be why I had a bit more trouble with smooth rotation.
Astronomy compels us to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.
