My astronomy project:
EQ mount with no meridian flip ideas


  1. Introduction
  2. First simple drawing of an idea
  3. What mount head to use?
  4. Base disc
  5. Arm details
  6. Twin telescope mount
  7. Azimuth angle trimmer
  8. Summary of the first ideas drawings

I take no responsibility for what are written here, you use the information at your own risk!

4, Base disc:

The base disc that arm will be welded to I plan to also function as an Azimuth adjuster (for some strange reason the SketchUp tool didn't let me draw rounded corners of the holes).

Base disc

The elongated holes let the azimuth angle be adjusted +/- 5 degrees. Even the Latitude angle can be fine adjusted with the bolts that holds the disc to the pier.
