Celestron Super C8+ (deforked) Atlas EQ-G Mount Celestron Onyx 80mm ED F Canon T4i (unmodified)
“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:Thanks, Uncle Rod. Quick semi-unrelated question for you, as you are a Celestron-o-file, or whatever, and having had an Atlas before I read about on your blog. I just deforked a Super C8 Plus to mount on this Atlas. I am using the Vixen bar to mount to the Atlas and for the flip side, I have installed my ADM MDS to hold my camera and my Celestron Onyx 80 EDF. With the Onyx mounted on the back, would that be an awkward load? Is it too much of a load for the three screws that hold the Vixen bar to the scope?
