Hi. Model 4001? I bought this at a garage sale the last time I was visiting home, and left it there without looking at it much. I just returned home and started to pull it together and have a few questions. I got the fork mounted on the tripod and tightened down. It moves ok in azimuth, but the altitude is real lose, too loose to mount the tube. Haven't tried the motor yet. The mirror looks OK. The 2ndary adjustment looks strange and as I don't have any collimating gear, I haven't tried to adjust it yet. Does anyone have a manual, or links to some good info somewhere on the net, or good pictures of what everything is supposed to look like? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'll post pictures later this evening. Thanks for your time. Adam

I have manuals for you! PM me your real email address and I'll attach them.

I completely stripped one of these down to restore it, so I know it pretty well. They're beautiful scopes! - j
