I recently picked up a used Televue Telepod mount.
I Believe the mount head is supposed to rotate in azimuth. It appears to be totally locked up. I removed the azimuth tensioning screw and the mount head will not rotate.
The only way to get the mount to rotate is to loosen the mount head on the tripod shaft, or to have it slightly loosened (unscrewed).
First - Am I correct - that the lower hand screw in this picture is supposed to control tension for rotation in azimuth?
Or - does this just rotate around the tripod shaft - and you loosen that to allow it to rotate?
