Setup and Tips
This Section of my web site is intended to show how to do alignments, balancing, and simple things that many take for granted after using their scopes for a while. When I first got started in this hobby, I struggled to get a fix on the correct alignment star. Some of the web forums were intimidating and I didn't want to ask what others might say are trivial questions. After a while, I realized there are no such things as trivial questions.

The PDF instructions are not intended to take the place of the Telescope Instruction Manual. They are intended as a suppliment and to give a quick guide for those late night setups.

Construction pdf's
I placed construction pdf files in this section because it is more conducive to add pdf files here. It is a tutorial as such for the construction of the Dry Creek View Observatory.
