Keep it up!  Practice is the best thing there is for our images.

I've been staying on trying to get my mount correctly aligned for Planetary imaging Chris, it's been an awesome experience. The frustration builds up and I just start viewing, the mount isn't anywhere near stable enough" ole' shaky" with the added weight that it has on it now. I got so frustrated that I'm brainstorming because my previous mods don't help when I add 1.1lb. camera and RACI finder off the Z10. I have to guess how far up I need to place the object before I lock it down. It will sag quite a bit and I added a collar off an old weightlifting bar, I just might need to add more weight . But, you think that might put even more strain on the worm and fine tuning adjustment? The worm I've noticed is got some slop in it with all that weight .
