Question about Telescopes
No matter how hard I try to tighten the latitude adjustment joint, it does not hold. the telescope simply tilts forward until the weight has gone as far as it will go.
There are 2 lock down bolts for the latitude adjustment, On my Meade I just witched the front one and the back one around. You will see one of them is longer than the other. This is for the switching depending on which side of the equator you live on.

Take the bolt out and go to a hardware store and buy one just like it-- except a little bit longer.
