Quote:For the love of God man! Don't do that!!!! I would laminate the entire bottom of the rocker box.
Quote:The base of my 6" f8 is 17 inches in diameter. I can't imaging putting a 12 inch on a disk that small. I'd say 22 inches is a minimum. Try to put the side walls of your rocker box above your laminate ring, rather than outside it.allan
Quote:It can be done easily. I adopted the Orion system to an Obsession. I mounted the encoders in plastic project boxes, attached an arm to the boxes, ran 1/4" bolt thru the hollow Orion encoder shaft. Then mounted them to the scope like standard encoders.
