      my message corrected from bugs.
      -------------------
      Put the megrez with the objective direction downwards.
      Now look at the bottom of the focuser.
      You will notice that there is three little chrom hex-screws that make kind
      of a triangle.
      The top screw is the adjustment screw. Rotate until you get the friction you
      want.
      That should do it.

      Pedro.
