Hello everyone...I just want to comment that the declination axis adapter thing is not the greatest, when you losses the set screws to turn about the declination axis, it is a tad rough and when you are in position and tighten up, the position shifts. Is there a better alternative than this?

I have no experience with it but William Optics provides one which looks a lot better.

The standard DEC is unworthy of the device..

Maybe something like this will work?
