I'm not sure that I understand your question however I own a ultama 8 and if the problem is that the dec. control is all the way to one end of the threads just leave the dec. lock loose and turn the knob until it is centered on the threads. The dec. alignment to the earth is adjusted on the wedge per your latitude. Unless there has been something serious happen to your scope the R.A. should not need any alignment. I hope this helps, if not come back to this forum and be more specific about your problem. Clear skies, Starman :>) : Hi everybody,

: I own a c8 deluxe and I am looking for a practical method to align the scopes optical axis to the mechanical axis. Just moving the declination axis does not do the job. So obviously I also need to adjust the forkarms. : Thanks very much!
