Well my 24 position click click rotateable focuser is still being worked on. The anodizer only dips on Fridays. So I'll have to use the Tasco another week. Figured I'd double check the altitude. Everytime you roll it out from storage in the corner the pier has to be replumbed. Then I have to recheck the altitude. Luckily Tasco has a nice flat straight spot on the casting. This time the 4-1/4" is testing my old eyes to the limit. But Jupiter does look nice thru the binoviewers tho. By the time next Saturday rolls around weather permitting I'll be stunned when looking thru the 10". Mike
