Open Source Altitude Adjustment Knob


This fixed knob is a replacement for the altitude adjustment handle on SkyWatcher EQ6-R Pro and Atlas II mounts. It provides a more positive engagement, making altitude adjustment easier. It replaces in seconds, and will not strip like the stock handle does. 3D print your own or order here.
