      Don;

      Thanks so much!!! That's exactly what it was. I kind of figured that was the case but I wanted to be sure before I started messing around with my new baby. :)

That is to say, that both the larger and smaller knobs on the fine focuser side have to be turned a 1/4 to a 1/3 of a turn before they actually engage. Whereas on the single knob on the other side of the focuser engages right away. Is this normal or is something loose? I check and both set screws in the focuser knob seem to be as tight as they can (should?) be.
