Thanks for your advice Ed! After struggling for months to stabilize a little NexStar 130SLT I can appreciate wanting a solid dovetail.

Is this the dovetail model you're talking about?

Also what do you think of this diagonal? Its quite a bit less than the AP or Televue.

You want the D-Series assuming that your mount has a D-series saddle. I think you said that you have a CGEM in which case I would also upgrade the saddle to the dual saddle when you get the chance. Best piece of kit out there.

I think that the OPT diagonal is fine. There are some real diagonal connoisseurs out there, but the differences tend to be far beyond what I notice.

BTW, do hesitate to buy used when you can find stuff.

Great, thanks Ed. I will keep those on my list. I suspect that I will want all the stability I can get.

That gave me an idea Bilgebay...Gonna scribe a line on my bobs knobs! thanks!




You are welcome. As you guys would say, been there, done that You will have a better control with the long torque arm of the allen wrench.

But of course a mark on the knob is better than nothing.
