Ive also put P.T.F tape on the barrel and the main thread of
the polar scope its a BIG improvement only a slight
arc nothing like before and like you said a slight wobble
should be fine now its just a matter of waiting for the
weather to clear

It is my pleasure - as I mentioned I used to own an Atlas/EQ6 for several years until just recently and now a number of my fellow club members have them too - we get a lot of experience with the mount.

BTW - good idea using the teflon tape - that should snug up those loose threads quite a bit!
