Hi,

 

Does anyone happen to know off-hand what size the two grub screws located on the pinion assembly on the 3035 focusers are? Searching the internet has resulted in zero success.

 

I managed to lose one several nights ago. I sent a message to Starlight, but it has been a couple days. As I am sure that they are busy with the current Covid situation, I thought I would ask on the forum just incase anyone has been in the same situation.

 

Thanks in advance,

Eigen

SI are around and are working - you might want to simply give them a ring. 

 

I actually heard from Wayne earlier this AM, so for sure they'll be happy to help., 

 

Best.,

Hello Skybsd, likewise. :) The extra time I have had on my hand in the past weeks has reinvigorated my desire to observe the skies, so expect to see a bit more of me on here, especially if these cloudy nights continue.

 

Just had an email exchange with Wayne @ Starlight, very prompt responses, great customer services. The threads on the pinion assembly are 8/32, in case anyone else needs to find the specifications in the future.

 

Regards,

Rok

Any chance you could post a photo of the screws/pinion?  

 

Thanks in advance.
