Buffing the ballscope

I picked up some Novus plastic polish today from American Plastics here in Columbus. I got the ball buffed up some to remove some of the stiction that is going on. It seems to help. It really is not that bad, but not Obsession buttery smooth (which is what I am going for). I almost decided to give up on the ball scope design, but I want to stick with it as it makes my telescope unique.

I am looking forward to our club’s winter star party down in the hocking hills on the 21st. It should be fun. One of our log time members tends to have an affect on the weather for this event as it has been clear for the past 6 years! It will be good to get the ballscope out under the stars.
