    Re: 6x telescope does not fit AstraIIIb snuggly
    From: Jim Thompson

    I haven't heard back from Celestaire yet, but the 6 x 30 Cassens & Plath
    telescope fits perfectly on my AstraIIIb using a single split washer that I
    found in my shop. The washer drops perfectly into the round depression on
    the telescope's support arm, and the washer's hole fits perfectly over the
    retaining bolt.  The 3.5 x 40 telescope works fine with that washer too, so
    I can leave the washer on the bolt, simply swap telescopes, and re-check the
    index error.  Celestaire might want to consider shipping that telescope with
    a stainless steel version of such a washer.
