Quote:The 8" Edge has mounting holes on the top and the bottom, so you can mount another dovetail (such as an ADM) on the top if you wish.This is a picture of my old one. I used an ADM mini rail on top, but you can also mount a Vixen or Losmandy. ADM dovetails come with the radius blocks and proper bolts, so it's an easy job.
Quote:I want to avoid having to resort to tube rings to mount two dovetail plates, which is what I have to do with my current C6 OTA.
Quote:OMG I have long admired that shot from another thread, yet it didn't dawn on me that your handle was attached to just such a second dovetail plate.I think what I'm going to do is to reverse your setup, i.e. put the existing CGEM/Vixen plate "on top" and the ADM mini rail "on the bottom". Do you think that will work, i.e. are the screw holes identical between the two positions?Lastly, out of curiosity where did you get that lovely metal handle you attached to the (presumably two) MDS dovetail adapters?Massive help, thanks again.- KJ
