Azimuth Bogey Rocker Design Progress
Last June I posted what turned out to be a first draft of the azimuth supports in the form of Larry McCune’s bogey rocker idea. We went through a bunch of iterations from that first draft and ended up with a design that Larry is now fabricating. Check the drawings tab for an updated design picture. Naturally, there are three of these – we decided that we needed solid support for the telescope and that the azimuth drive wheel shouldn’t do double duty as a support for the weight of the scope.
