Quote:Just saw all the responses. Looking forward to hearing more input and guidance. Thanks for the quick replies! Here's a shot of the mount. On a side note, has anyone slapped on a long Losmandy dovetail to the rotating rings and put their Cave on a modern mount? I wouldn't mind trying it on my CGE with some of my astrophotography gear once it's back together!!!

Did you get the 2" adapter with yours? I did not get mine even though I bought it from the original owner.
