Rotating a Lunt solar scope
      #5518046 - 11/13/12 02:29 PM

I have a Lunt LS60Tha scope. I will be getting a dovetail for it, and want to use it on a a mount that has the dovetail slot oriented vertically. Are there any issues with loosening up the clamshell, and rotating the OTA 90 degrees? I assume not, but just want to make sure I don't do anything that is going to affect the internals.
