Hi Folks,

My wife bought a PST and the Coronado (Meade) DS mount for me as a birthday present last year. I'm looking at buying an Orion 80ed and was wondering if it would fit on the narrow-looking L-bracket on the DS mount?

Thanks!
Brian

If anyone is interested, the answer is probably yes. I ended up getting a Celestron Onyx and it fits.
