Hi Guys
What are the tricks to make rotating the newtonian OTA within the tube rings during an observing session an easy operation?
I seem to have so much difficulty rotating the OTA even with the tube clamps loosened.
Is there any method to make this a less frictionless manouvere?
Thanks Guys

It helps if handles are attached to the 'scope to pull it round into position.
