Convert an EXT 70 into a finder scope for my DOB
Posted 11 August 2013 - 05:13 PM
I have an EXT 70 which I don't use and seeing as i'm more of a deep sky observer i doubt I will ever use it. I have been thinking of mounting it on my big Dob as a finder.
Do you think it would make a good finder for deep sky objects and if yes what recommendations on mounting rings would you have to do so?
Thanks in advance for your advice

This shows my present setup.

This is my original point-to system set up with my Lightbridge 16. I set the point-to scope just north of my Dob so it doesn't get in the way.

My DOB is a strut style and i have wooden brackets that mount on the strut so i can mount the dovetail or something like that.
