    Re: CP-300/U Star Finder

    It would have been nice if there were a little tab on the star base to make it easier to turn. When I turn the altitude grid the star base moves so i turn them both until the star base has GHA aries at zero longitude, lift the graticle slightly, pinch the star base to keep it from moving and then set the grid. I think I will put a piece of tape on the underside of the star base to make a tab. I also put a red dot on the zero meridian to make it easier to locate. i agree about the size of the type.

    Got mine yesterday.  Any hints on where to hold/pinch the various disks when doing the initial setting?  I seem to have to lift the clear overlay to pinch to other two.
     I find the slightly smaller type surprising more difficult for my old eyes.
