Question about Galileo FS-120CTC Telescope

1 Answer

Lots of movement

I have never had a telescope before but my son Will won one for raising money for JRDF (Juvenile Diabetes research Foundation). We found out Will had type 1 diabetes 1-27-2005. Anyway Will raised $15,142.00. He picked the Galileo Fs-102ctc for his prize. The probelm I am having is that there seems to be a lot of play where the counter weight and telescope attach. It just doesn't seem very steady. It has about one eighth inch play in it. Is that normal. Thanks for any help you can offer me. Tim

What is the sugar is good for type 2 diabities and ready level.

Well, no sugar is really GOOD for diabetes. With sweeteners the general wisdom seems to be that Stevia sweetener is the safest.

However you see, with Diabetes 2 it isn't the suger only you have to watch it is your carbohydrate intake, since carbs are converted in your body to glucose, at different rates.

Many foods are quite high in carbs and these need to be minimised if you have D2. They will have a high Glycemic Index (GI) rating, so you look for low GI index foods.

Some foods haven't been rated when you buy them, so check out the sugar content and the carb content on the Net. You will find wide variations in say, breads.

You may want to get a blood glucose test kit (fingerprick) to see how you are going. The doctor will want you to have a HbA1c blood test which is a sort of 3-month average reading.

The other best thing you can do is lose a lot of weight if you aren't already thin, and exercise, say 30 min 4 times a week.

I'd urge you to avoid quack remedies and naturopathy etc. Diabetes is incurable, progressive and can have awful consequences if not well managed.

Am I a doctor? No, I have diabetes 2 myself, and I am giving you all the info I got. Good luck.

Is Glucobate good?

Glucobate? Glucofake!
It's a phony ad for a phony product created by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to alert consumers to the dangers of diabetes treatment scams on the Internet.

Evaluating online health claims is a two-step process. First, be smart. Then, be skeptical. It's best to check any product out with your health care provider. That's because some fraudulent marketers try to make money by peddling products that sound great, but just don't - and can't - work as promised.

Here are some tips on how to spot scams before you get stung.
  • A promise that a product can cure diabetes is a tip-off to a rip-off. There's no pill, patch, tea, herb, or other "miracle" treatment that can make diabetes go away forever.
  • Ads that promise too much generally deliver nothing. Don't buy any product that claims it can do it all - stabilize your blood sugar, end your need for insulin, regenerate your pancreas, reduce your cholesterol, and cause easy weight loss.
  • A product that claims to be a "scientific breakthrough" may be a bust. Researchers around the world are racing to find better treatments for diabetes, so genuine scientific discoveries make front-page news. If the first you hear about a new treatment is an ad on the Internet, be suspicious.
  • Ads that try hard to sound scientific are suspect. Technical terms don't necessarily mean medical proof. And the presence of a doctor in an ad is no guarantee the product works. Scam artists have been known to dress models to look like experts.
  • >
  • Don't be swayed by a questionable "success story". Despite what the company claims, there's no guarantee that "A.B. of Hometown, USA" had the advertised results - or is even a real person.
  • A money-back guarantee does not prove that a product works. Scam artists who offer a guarantee have been known to take your money and run.
  • If an ad for a product makes you curious, ask your healthcare provider about it before you try it - or buy it . If you're thinking about trying something new, run it past a doctor, nurse, dietician, or other health professional who knows your case well.

Does the guidelines in the ebook "Diabetes Destroyed" by Joseph Borden actually work for curing diabetes?

If it did work NHS would hand them out like sweets to save money.
That said it may help to prevent maturity on set diabetes but I honestly don't think so.

Is it true that GlucoHealth can reverse Diabetes?

This sounds like a false claim and would seek a caring doctors advice and not that of a marketing department

Need more friction on movements. The slightest touch moves off target

Remove the 3 screws holding the black cover on the mounting arm. Gently tighten the lock nut until you achieve the required resistance but not too much that motor won't function. I found less that 1/8th of a turn was enough.

ETX gearbox is faulty

You slammed the scope into the "hard" stop and broke the gears-- you must start from the "home" position-- so read the manual. Sorry but you will need to send it into Meade for repairs.
