So, I think I have the problem licked. Just as long as you don't lick the rollers at 15°!

+1 for the Duct Tape Dew Shield, Red G. would be proud.




I'm already on Red G's goto list. I spent 10 years of my life using a duct tape wallet. I've built hundreds in my day.

Nickel Antiseize Paste.. Apply to rails,wheels and bearing surfaces with a small ,1" paint brush.. This kept my former clubs ROR from frost sticking for over 40 years in NH. We did it every 2-3 years.
GOOD LUCK, NICE OBSERVATORY.
Jim
