Can you help me with the televue Tele-pod mount.  The yoke wobbles between the two horizontal plates holding the base of the yoke.  There is too much space between these two plates, and as a result the yoke moves up and down when I am move the yoke to track or go to a new object.

 

The tele-pod is many years old and has the words "panoramic" on its side.  It fits onto my wooden tripod.

 

Please see the two videos and photo.

If you unscrew the black delrin piece in the middle, it will uncover a few holes with set screws in them.  Loosen the set screws and then tighten the top plate as you would a screw or knob.  Then retighten the set screws and reinstall the delrin hub.

Thanks so much.  Now repaired and working.  So very happy.  Televue's instructions don't include anything about this.
