Very nice too Al.

So everyone can blame you for the bad weather now instead of meย ๐Ÿ˜

Yes, should've said sorry everyone. Though you're alright for the moment. Still no tube rings. Last I heard, he was looking for the right ones to send. Hopefully he posted them today :)ย

Does anyone have a spare 5kg weight that I could borrow until mine arrives. I really want to get this beast out next clear night. Either that or I am going to have to sandbag it.ย

You will need to drill out Skywatcher or Celestronย  weights to 28mm to fit your mount which I believe has a 28mm diameter counter balance shaft.
