Quote:i just bought an orion spaceprobe 3 - http://www.rocketroberts.com/astro/spaceprobe3altaz.htmthe optical quality is way better than the cheap department store refractor we had a few years ago, but the mount is really shaky. adjusting focus causes the image to jump and bounce all over the place, as does barely touching the eyepiece by accident.is there any way to stabilize it, maybe with some weights or something? would a larger dob, like an orion xt8 have that problem?thanks!jacob
