As can be seen, the C8 with the Voyager AltAz mount on an old Gitzo photo tripod is already a very portable setup. But the Voyager AltAz mount in its original configuration is too big to go into a backpack with the C8 OTA.
I modify my Voyager AltAz mount by replacing the long side arm with a piece of aluminum angle, similar to what I had done to my Porta AltAz mount.
