Re: Mount TLC

Hello Pete. That's what I do for now :mrgreen: Generally I could live with that but if there is a chance to improve.......then why not. It's nothing urgent at the moment and I think it'll be ok when the scope is guided. Need to do something to check how it works when guided and how to do the guiding...
