This past weekend I was finally able to sit down with a file and work on the threads. Took me maybe an hour, but now everything is fitting very nicely. I replaced the worn out foam with some red felt, I like how it turned out.
Got to set it up for the first time last night. Had a somewhat clear sky but got some great views of the moon. I'm a city dweller so I'll have to head out of the city if I want to really enjoy some viewing.
One question though; I haven't gotten a tool to check to collimation yet. Looking at the back, it still has a tacky puddy with an emblem stamped into them(forgot to grab a pic) The thing is, I commute on a motorcycle and don't own a car. I'm wondering if this were in its case and on the motorcycle, would the vibrations and stiffer suspension cause it to fall out of alignment? Any suggestions on things that could be done with transport it safely?
