Excellent replacement knobs! Wonderfully machined. I agree with the earlier comment that they tend to stick out a bit and hit each other when the scope is in certain observing positions. Still well worth the inexpensive price.

Excellent addition to EQ5 type mounts. Very nicely machined, and a great upgrade from the cheesy plastic knobs that come with the EQ-5's.

Only problem is they stick out quite far from the mount, and can hit each other when the scope is pointed in certain parts of the sky.

Nonetheless, they are worth every penny!

I ordered the EQ-150 aluminum knobs to replace the plastic ones on my stabilized Takahashi TeeGull altaz mount and they are really wonderful!!!!! Excellent machining and it actually makes moving the slow-motion controls much easier since they are deeper than the originals and allow you to get your hand in the best and most comfortable position. These replacement knobs are a real bargin at onl $20 for the set of two +$5 shipping. My highest recommendation!!!!
