Hey guys I wanted to let you all know that I looked at Jupiter Saturn and other planets last night and thier markings. I found my biggest problem was the view finder was off the scope wasn't seeing what I saw through it. I fixed that problem via beacon from a tower 5 miles away. My next problem is to work on the mount when I use it at 90 deg. it is not sturdy. (at 8:00 and 9:00 because my kids can be with me at that time)I made a make do wieght to add to my balancer untill I can get with Tasco for something to use.

Thanks again
