Somwhere on the net I saw plans for making a mount like that. I just do not remember where.

If you copy and paste the whole link it works. Your post is only recognizing part of the address as a link.

Beautiful scope Brian.

Thanks everyone...
not going to get overly excited
Till I view with it...
Numbers and reports are great
But I have had some very fine
Optics in the 100mm range.
this should blow them
Out pf the water....but guess ill
Know when this cold cloudy
Spell is over.
in the meantime ill get it mounted
On the AP 800.
With the sliding dewshield and
Long drawtube I might be able to
find a case for this off the shelf.

If not, plywood is only 96", I guess you'll have to piece it. Man, that thing is looooong.

Beautiful new scope. Can't wait to hear what it sees like. 100mm at f/20, I can only imagine.
