Show me an aging Greek and I'll show you the Nick of time.
Quote:Terry (tnakazon) posted on 7/14. Sometimes I'll take the OTA off the tabletop and use it on my Vixen Mini-Porta mount with slow motion controls.
Small scope enthusiast. Large scope aficionado
Quote:Nice!And here is my scope with the tabletop mount attached to a Manfrotto 055XDB tripod. I removed the 1/4-20 thread adapter from the tabletop so I could attach the Manfrotto, which uses a 3/8-16 thread size.
Quote:Greg, there's still going to be coma in the outer field of view with this scope since its an F/4, but if the scope was miscollimated before like it was on mine, center spotting and collimating via the secondary mirror will make a noticeable difference, especially on the planets and double stars. I've had black felt inserted inside the tube for over a year, no fuzz droppings on the mirror...
Quote:I enjoyed this article...
Quote:Man I wish I had that photo to use in my review, that one really shows off the finish of the optical tube. I couldn't get any of my photos to do it that much justice.
