Custom desing from Baader Planetarium:
The axis knobes of the GM1000 mount were constructed in a way so they can’t be hand-tightened with brute force. This design feature leads some users to the fact that the RA or DEC axis of the mount can not be tightened sufficiently. If you had problems to open or tighten the RA / DEC axis knobs (on cold nights with gloves this is difficult), we now have the solution for you: We have developed a RA/DEC-torque wrench for GM 1000 HPS, with which the knob can be operated easily. The wrench is produced on own 3D printers.
Detailed operating instructions:
Für owner of a 3D-Printer we offer you the standard version of our RA/DEC-wrench (without torque) as a free-of-charge download.
