Screw sizes on Orion 80mm ED
      #5741110 - 03/18/13 04:42 PM

Does anyone know the size of the three allen screws on the Orion 80mm ED? These are the three screws that hold the adapter to the scope, on the back end. I tried looking at the specs of the scope and adapter, but it doesn't list the screw sizes. I need to replace one of them.

My Orion ED80 has philips head screws holding the adapter to the OTA.

Take one of the screws down to a hardware store and they can identify it in less than a minute.
