Quote:Ingenious idea... I have unfortunately taped my Telrad onto my OTA, so no going back now What is the best way to remove the sticky tape from your OTA, assuming one day you want to do this? Can you avoid messing up the OTA paint job?Al
Quote:Remove the ring mounting hardware. Disassemble the spring-loaded plunger and re-install the main casing....it holds the Telrad very nicely.What do you think?

“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
