I have a single arm DIY alt-az mount that I like to tweak. My question has to do with the spacing of the rings.
The rings are mounted on a plate which in turn is mounted to the alt axis. Presently the rings are spaced 5 1/2" apart for an 80mm scope whose overall length is approx. 28 inches.
My question is this: Would increasing the distance between the rings improve the "handling"?
