The Takahashi Teegul Alt-azimuth Mount is also a RA/Dec mount!

The Takahashi Teegul Alt-azimuth Mount is also a RA/Dec mount!

The precision and build of the Teegul mount are typical Takahashi, yet we astronomers have still found a way to make it better. I have come up with one more way to increase its usefulness.


Comments:

Hi there - I realize this article is a little dog-eared, but hopefully if you no longer have your Teegul mount, you will recall the mods you made.

My question is specific to removing the blue logo disc to access the machined flange behind.

How did you get it off without trashing it? I've tried gently prising the edges to no affect. If possible, I'd like to keep them intact for possible future owners should they wish to revert some of the changes..

Thanks
