I lost count of my scopes. Now I just want mobility. I came, I saw, I bought some interesting accessories, and put names to faces: NEAF 2012, ASAE 2012, SWAP 2013, ASAE 2013.
Quote:apparently, some of the most elderly Astro-Physics mounts (the 706 is probably one of them..) are Meade mounts retrofitted with Byers gears. e.g. http://www.astromart.com/classifieds/details.asp?classified_id=820909but these are really, really old and i can't find any documentation on them (they predate the 504 and 706 mounts).but that said.. a Meade DS16 mount and a Byers gear from ebay could be a faithful reproduction of an early-1980s AP mount The earliest Bisque mounts like the Paramount GT1100 also sported Byers gears.
World Explorer, Satellite Development, and all that...
