Very handy, well crafted handle that makes slewing the mount much easier. Thanks Stellarvue for hand crafted quality at a reasonable price!
Probably should be a 5-star, but I have a couple of things I'd note that could be better. First off, the quality is high. Note 1: The handle has a little wiggle to it after being screwed in tightly. I simply added a little rubber sticker/pad between the handle and clamp before tightening it, and that wiggle is gone. Note 2: The handle isn't very long and is bent. So when you're looking towards the zenith the handle will align itself with the pillar, and then rotating the azimuth becomes difficult. A longer or slightly straighter handle might work better. But overall, I'm very pleased to have added it. Good buy and good price.
It is an accessory for the MC2, but one that works and servers the user's ability to quickly look at stellar objects.
Do you really need this? No. Are you going to wish you had it if you bought the M002 without it? Yes. Just do yourself a favor and buy it. :)
The handle attaches very easily and makes guiding your telescope so much easier. Very well made.
A great addition to the mount. Well designed with a few different installing options.
This handle is useful to have as you don't have to grab the scope by the focuser to point or adjust. There are a couple of bolt (supplied) holes in the handle and a couple in the mount plate so it is easy to find an orientation that works for you.
