Re: Saddle to mount alignment EXOS 2 #EXOS2 #alignment

Alan:

I think the answer lies with the tripod.  Is the tripod level in all axis (x, y, z)?  Are the tripod legs fully extended? Is the tripod spreader firmly pressed against all of the tripod legs? Rotating the tripod in the direction of the severe Az adjustment will help.
