Quote:A word of caution about the E-Z touch dovetail "shoe" into which, the dovetail bar that is attached to the scope, fits.WO uses a Vixen-size dovetail shoe but it is differently shaped than many other dovetail shoes. the top of the shoe (the receptacle into which the bar fits) is too narrow to simply lay a standard vixen dovetail in it. You must therefore insert the dovetail bar by "threading" it into the shoe from one of its ends.

Quote:No problem is going off topic Timm. Like I said, it was my first time with the 16mm UWAN and the Moon, so I did not know what to expect. Good to know it is normal. BTW, how do the SPLs work on the Moon? I am wondering if I should add to the TMBs or try the SPLs. Looking for a 6mm option and also adding a barlow to get closer.
