1200GTO worm gear thrust washer?

Mike Shade

The flat washer, the one with two holes on it at the end of the worm shaft (under the little screw on cover) continues to loosen up causing some degree of backlash.  It has done it for both RA and DEC.  Any ideas how to tighten this properly and prevent it from doing this in the future?

Already, in the gathering dusk, a few of the stars are turning on their lights.

Vega, the brightest one, is now dropping towards the west.  Can it be half

a year since I watched her April rising in the east?  Low in the southwest
