12" Bintel Dobso

I bought Bintel Dobso 12" in 2007, i struggled to add Argo navis as was getting huge pointing inaccuracies. After stiffening the cradle Argo works perfectly. Unfortunately one pin of the Az encoder got damaged which requires replacement of the encoder.
I still find problem with the viewfinder which is not a great design. It does not seem to be strong and moves and too much tightening dents the tube.

Hi Ram

to IceInSpace.

Glad to hear your Argo is working well now. I agree with the viewfinder - definitely could be improved. But a telrad or red dot finder does help a lot too.
