1, CG5 mount head:

Jacek is a new friend in the astronomy interest that we share.

CG5 mount, making a new bushing:

The CG5 mount is a low cost mount and needs some work.

Jacek's CG5 mount project

Jacek's comment:
"I set up the top plate of the CG5 mount in the milling machine. I centered on the bolt that sits in the middle so it wouldn't pull sideways. With the deburring tool I milled the inner part. Then I revolved a Teflon ring with a press fit. Pressed it in and turned it out to measure so that the other part has an easy sliding fit."

Jacek's comment:
"Here is the lower part of the mount in place and now without a radial play."
