I have a Lunt LS60Tha scope. I will be getting a dovetail for it, and want to use it on a a mount that has the dovetail slot oriented vertically. Are there any issues with loosening up the clamshell, and rotating the OTA 90 degrees? I assume not, but just want to make sure I don't do anything that is going to affect the internals.
