I'm considering the NS spacer for my G11, I'm mainly running a WO132FLT on the mount and sometimes my C11. I'm curious to get some feedback, concerns, thoughts and actual reports from anyone using this spacer. It's not cheap, and wondering if it's worth it, because for that price I could get a new Delos or 2. Thanks! :question:

I don't have the Omnivision spacer, but I use a spacer from Wolfgang Zimmerman in Austria. If you are referring to a spacer to get extra clearance from the RA motor, Wolfgang charges $250 shipped. The spacer is perfectly machined, black anodized aluminum, comes with mounting hardware (extra long hex bolts to connect the declination axis), and I had it within a week of ordering. It is exactly what I needed to keep my OTAs and the mount's saddle away from the RA motor.

PM me if you'd like Wolfgang's contact info.
