I recently purchased a Coronado SolarMax II telescope, 90 mm DIA., and LX 80 Mount (a complete package from Optics Planet). The dovetail interface part, used for attaching the telescope to the LX80 mount, is clearly not designed for use with this telescope and this mount. Meade was unhelpful in helping me resolve this issue. Their response was that, although it was designed for use on another telescope, I should be able to get it to work with this one.
I attached a photo. Notice how far forward the telescope needs to be to be balanced on the declination axis. It is only being held by two 1/4-20 screws on the dovetail slider.
I am planning on designing a new dovetail mount, and having it made by a machine shop. But I would rather buy one that works. Any comments, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
