LXD75 compatible mount extension?
      #5685382 - 02/17/13 02:55 PM Attachment (21 downloads)

Anyone know if the CG5 or other similar class mount extensions are compatible with the Meade LXD75? Using the LXD75 with my Towa 80mm and worried about the focuser hitting the tripod legs while the mount is slewing.

I had an LXD75 years back and used the Orion 16" pier extention with it, there is a slot on the bottom of the extention I had to slightly open up with a Dremel to fit the "pin" on top of the LXD tripod, it was a piece of cake to do it and it was rock solid, hope this helps.
