Stolen accessory box
      #6151633 - 10/22/13 12:43 PM

Some moron stole my telecope accessory box from my truck recently. It conatined a lot of equipment such as cables, bolts and screws taht I am in the process of replacing. My seonday telescope mount is held to the LX200 Ota by the standard Maede OTA screws. I need to kow the hex screw size to get a replacemnt tool so I can remove my secondary mount plate. I have to do this toi match threads for the mount plate...where my ring assembly attaches.

I also lost my power cables and my computer serial to USB cable, and my ToUCam web camera. It will be quit a job to rplace all of the equipment that was lost.

Mate that's bad news.... LX tubes up to the 10" use 8x32UNC around each end of the tube for accessories and the finder dovetail.

What size allen wrench is it for these screws? I have to unmount the bracket for my ring set and get a new attachment bolt for it.
