Zeiss Telementor Mounting question.
      #5610429 - 01/07/13 03:23 PM

If I am posting this in the wrong space let me know please. I have a Zeiss telementor 1 that is mounted on a manual EQ Zeiss mount. I would like to mount this OTA on one of my Unitron EQ mounts when I want to use automated guiding. I have read that the dovetail plate on the Telementor will fit on the AP DOVE08 saddle. Can someone tell me if that is true? Perhaps someone has allready used the DOVE08 on a Telementor. This way I may be able to use the DOVE08 saddle (with some mods) to attach to the Unitron mount.

I would of course welcome any additional ideas on this.

Thanks in advance,

Bob

Thanks Julio ... I will proceed. It's always good to hear from someone who has done it and that opens up a lot of mounting options for various applications.

Me too, I use the DOVE08. AP and Zeiss seemed to share the same narrow rail for a while.

Thanks for the response Gary. I am working on obtaining a DOVE08 so I can move forward with that project. I will let you guys know how it turns out.

Thanks all for the responses. Got my DOVE08 a few days back. Fits great. Now to make the adapter plate for the Unitron Mount. When I get it all together I will post a picture.

Bob
