About this product
Part Number: M12-AZIMUTH
Astrodymium Upgraded Azimuth Bolts - M12x1.75
Make polar alignment easier and more comfortable with these custom made azimuth bolts.
The larger knobs make adjustments easier & more precise. A wider range of motion is also possible, because of the more ergonomic nature of these replacements.
Comes in a set of two.
The following is a list of mounts that have been confirmed to work with the upgraded bolts. Most mounts that use the following threads for azimuth will work as well: M12x1.75.
- Sky-Watcher EQ6-R Pro / Orion Atlas II

I stupidly managed to bend one of the original bolts on the eq6-r. so I bought these as a replacement. I would say they are slightly better than the original bolts but wouldn't personally buy them as an upgrade unless you are really keen on marginal gains!

Would have given 4-5stars but there was very little rounding off on the end of the bolt (the burr has been filed but it is square) and where the shoulder of the bolt meets the post of the tripod you can definitely feel a click when the “valley” of the thread touches the post. The original bolt has a large dome on the end of the bolt so there is an even pressure point on the az post at all times and as such causes minimal marring of the post.
Easily fixed with a sharp file but it’s a shame it couldn’t have come from factory as such. The 3d printed knob is a good size and strong, the spikes on the knob could be a potential cable snag.
First order from FLO, came very quickly to Channel Islands.
