It's been a while since I posted a telescope mod article, so I figure'd I'd share this mod, submitted by a reader, Clay Cooper. Basically, he replaced the bolt that holds the springs with a 1/4-20 bolt with a knob and a washer. A simple and elegant solution to the pesky springs, this mod also allows adjustment of the altitude tension "on the fly". Check out the pics below to see!
