[color="blue"] "Manny Myles" has just provided me a special bracket to go on the A-T Voyager alt/az to provide a very neat way to mount anything from an AstroTrac to just a DSLR and prime lens to anything else you might wish to mount to a horizontal plate, rotatable in both altitude and azimuth.

A picture of this custom bracket has been uploaded to the Equipment Photos section.

I am most pleased with this very useful piece of astro equipment from "Manny", and my thanks go out to him for his great ideas and for his superb craftmanship. :applause:

I used Dave's pan handle and right angle support bracket for my Porta Mount. Greatly enhanced the useability and they were well-made. He takes pride in his work.
