DIY Telescope Mount
After pricing good quality mounts we decided to make our own, I went to work designing a mount that would be totally adjustable as well as robust enough to have kids lean on at star parties without moving the mount. We then set to work utilizing our own respective strenghts in manufacturing to build each piece part to the required tolerances the design required. We are very pleased with the results of over a years labour and much patience on behalf of our wives.
