ETX-125EC Right Angle Bracket Screws
      #5615292 - 01/10/13 11:18 AM

I just purchased my very first ETX-125EC from CL for $200. Optics are very good on the unit, even though the guy I purchased from tipped it over on the tripod, bending the tube so the dust cap can no longer screw on.

However, the bracket for the right angle view finder screws are bent. Anyone know the screw size for the bracket screws? I've searched everywhere and can't find it. Where could I purchase them too. Thanks. Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere couldn't find it.

Pretty sure that's it. Scope is imperial the mount is metric, just keep things interesting.

Just an FYI...

I used the 1/2" screws, but the 7/16" will also do the trick of not interfering with the fork mount. The 1/2" gives you a little more to grab in the dark. Also I would highly recommend getting the knurl knob. Stainless steel too.
