“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.

Quote: Have you ever piggybacked a scope using the Teegul? I've seen setups with counterweights but somehow I think I would prefer a dual mount setup along the lines of the EzTouch, Giro, etc.
Quote: I've also considered building a counterweight contraption but so far have just not gotten around to it. Maybe I need a new project!
Quote:...I'd really like to develop a good counterweight system for the Teegul besides (or in addition to) the EP tray that's easy to install, effective and affordable. Just haven't had the time or inclination--maybe this discussion will help. Then, there's gotta be a bunch of Teegul owners out there that have come up with something???? How 'bout it???
Quote:I bought one under the Orion brand. I had to ship it back. It lacked proper tension. When I changed out a heavy eyepiece, the scope wanted to pitch forward. I called up Orion and they admitted to me that the tension knob won't work to completely lock off the mount.
Quote:Hi Starlighter,Have you tried these guys yet? Link I think this is what you're looking for ...
Quote:I checked with OPT and they don't have what's called a Teegul. They do sell the Takahashi TG-LMLT Lapides Modified Alt-Az Mount in green. It comes with a tripod although I don't know which one. It reads: "We're sorry... But manufacturer specifications are currently unavailable for this product." It runs $799. They also say it's drop shipped, but don't say from where. Anyone have one who can post a photo showing what tripod is included?
