...using:

pair Parallax 7" rings,
pair Parallax 80mm rings,
pair ADM 80mm rings
pair ADM 66mm rings
two ADM 15" D-series dovetails
one Discmount 8" D-dovetail
one (brand unknown) 8" D-dovetail

And

AP 6" triplet APO
William Optic 80mm 'Anniversary' Fluorite Doublet
William Optic 66mm SD Achromat

bunches of bolts.

I got tired of fiddling around with configurations with not enough rings and dovetails. A phone call to Anthony at ADM solved the problem. The switching around of scopes is now much easier.....

Hey Dave,

Does that AP use a 7" tube? The one I have uses a 6.5", but I think that's for the 155.

Yep, 7.00". I measured it thrice before contacting Joe at Parallax. He has sold many pairs for this particular scope and he confirmed my measurements.

I also like "Interchangeability". besides ADM, AP and Parallax, I like TEC rings.

But don't like AT/WO and a few other imports due to inferior Aluminum used in the rings.
