This is my first message at cloudynights, which i followed greedily over the last two months or so. So first of all hello everybody :-)
I bought a pair of Celestron 20x80 Skymaster (standard) recently, which i'm enjoying a lot (despite some quality problems, i feel they're good for the price). I took them out about 5-6 times right now, and i haven't owned any big binoculars before. One thing that's clear to me after these wonderful nights, is that i need to mount them on something solid.
So i'm planning building a paralelogram mount for them. I feel it pretty straightforward, but i can't figure out how to make an az axis bearing (for the base, not the binos side) strong enough and stoppable.
Any ideas here? Any close photo, link, sketch, description or so?
Thanks a lot.
