A 60mm department store refractor started it all....
Beside the DM6, the other contenders are the T-Rex and possibly the AYOdigi.

Quote:Your C9.25 has a relatively short OTA. I don't know where the balance point is on that scope, but I hope it's significantly more forward than on my Mewlon 210, otherwise your knee will hit the tray.
Quote:I'm waiting for a quote from Berlebach for a Planet with a larger 50 cm tray in place of the 37 cm spreader in order to give a wider spread angle and thus better stability with the offset load. I'd like a large tray without EP-holes, like the one I have on my 10 year old UNI18L, but that tray is no longer listed. I have a feeling they might be willing make one for me, but let's see what they reply...
Quote:How about turning the diagonal outward? Makes hand-tracking a bit trickier, and perhaps navigating a bit more challenging, but on a GEM you would anyway constantly be adjusting the diagonal rotation depending on where you are pointing.
Quote:The main reason why I don't like doing this, though it is unavoidable, is that I don't like looking at Jupîter and the Moon laying on their side.
Quote:I don't really understand Berlebach's comments. Must be a different tray as the one I have, which is secured with a large screw at the center. Quite frankly I much prefer the spreader that came with mine. I think their suggestion to leave the installation of the spreader to you, to fine-tune the leg angle as you wish, is the best option.
