Quote:I want a solid tube because it is easier for a first build, I can reuse most of my parts, there are less thermal issues, easier to hold collimation, and I like the alt clutch design that gso uses and I want to use it on the scope.
What I'm using:
114mm f8 Tasco 11T
8" f6.8 Cardboard-tube Dob
8" f5 travel dob
12" f5 truss Dob
C80 F11 achromat
CG-5 GT Mount

Quote:The reason I like the clutches is that my eyepieces vary in size so much that balancing the scope for all of them is not quite possible.
