Cobra

Our choice was to use a jewel pivot as found in the finest of aircraft instruments, which offer the lowest friction possible via mechanical means. Stabilisation is via outrigger pivot, which allows for precise azimuth adjustment. VTA is adjustable on the fly using a 40TPI microscope fine pitch thread vertical adjustment mechanism. Clamping is by a triangulated locking system which avoids the co...[more]
