Top trol­ley

Sky at Night Magazine - - INTERACTIVE -

Hav­ing re­cently drawn up my own de­sign for a home-made trol­ley I was very in­trigued to open the Septem­ber is­sue to find Mark Par­rish’s sim­i­lar de­sign (How To, page 82). I’ve just fin­ished it and so have only had a cou­ple of ses­sions with it so far, but it cer­tainly makes set­ting up a lot quicker and eas­ier: not hav­ing to carry heavy equip­ment like an EQ6 head is a real ben­e­fit for my bad back! I’m hop­ing that this new setup will en­cour­age me to use my tele­scope more of­ten, par­tic­u­larly as we have had such change­able weather of late. Jeff Hop­ton, Sut­ton Cold­field

That’s a sturdy-look­ing plat­form, Jeff. The white fin­ish ties it in re­ally well with the EQ6 mount! – Ed
