Making my CPC1100 look flashy!


Recommended Posts

I doubt anyone's interested (!) but I've just been improving the look of my observatory based wedged  CPC1100.  Have just bought from ebay and fitted some new anodised thumbscrew bolts for my finder and ordered some the same (capheads) but for the sixteen matching ones on the wedge that are looking a bit corroded as well as the ones retaining the underslung counterweight bar.  I will probably have a look for some to replace the larger ones as well.  Just 'cos its functional, doesn't mean it cant look pretty too! Along with the new Celestron motor focuser, looking really nice.  If anyone else can suggest anything else in anodised orange, don't be shy. I'm so shallow!
