My  Altitude Graduation Dial Came Off my mount. Any recommendations on how to reattach it correctly?

Since we have absolutely NO idea what mount you have, nor the type, how can we possibly help?

Apologies, hopefully these two pics will assist in providing advice on how to fix this.   https://photos.app.g...fDusQMvQnoCyfk9

Those are pictures with the Graduation Dial on probably not your actual mount. Pictures of the mount without the Graduation Dial off would help us help you on a fix.

 

Cheers

Unfortunately, those are only glued into place.  There is no chance that you will be able to glue them back exactly the same way they were.

 

FORTUNATELY, they probably were not glued into place using a high end level after putting the mount in a jig...in other words, they were probably not accurate to begin with.  So, if you can kinda level the tripod, level the mount, then glue it back into place using a level, you'll be as accurate as it was to begin with.

 

Any kind of glue/epoxy/cement will work.

Thank you for your guidance and instruction Mr. Brad Shaw.  I will follow your steps and fix it tonight.
