Quote:OK, the OAG came in. Here's the issue guys. I'm into large RC helicopters and have to deal with this exact size set screws a whole bunch, and I will tell you that they should not ever be tighten with a normal hex wrench. They are just too small for a cheap wrench with pressed, or cast edges. I have a special hex driver with machined edges on the hex. It does NOT slip! For example.http://www.rcboca.com/dynamite-machined-hex-driver-1-5mm.html?gclid=CMioptvA6...You really need one if your going to keep this OAG.
Quote:K, so I tried it tonight and got stars. But... It's 2 inches from the center of it to the tip of my lodestar... so that means I need my camera to be at least that far away too right?I need another spacer to make it happen.

Quote:Chris,Yeah, there is just the one set screw on the TOAG body that holds the prism part in place. It comes in from the side, since the prism stalk is a bit smaller that the opening in the TOAG, there is play. I can wiggle it with my fingers. Not sure how much would actually move while imaging, especially once the one set screw is tightened. But it does move, so I am serious thinking of adding a set screw 90deg to the existing one just in case.
