Quote:You might need a longer dovetail If you image with the 65. I'm pretty sure I had seen a post where it was a little back heavy with the stock tail and can't balance.

Quote:Also by the time I buy all these accessories I may as well have just been better of buying the AT65 with built in flattener correct?
Quote:Can I use the 72 as a guide scope for autoguiding?
Quote:I'm thinking of putting them side saddle on my vx mount. Who sells a good saddle for this application? As far as the auto guiding with the At72, is it just as simple as plugging the camera to the back?Thanks for all the help

Quote:I got a t3i and the Tring at my local camera store, but what kind of adapter would I need to hook the t-ring up to the AT65eq. Im assuming it would have to be an extension type to achieve focus?
