That's weird. Just noticed that SLT's are designed to work 'the wrong way' compared to the SE mounts-- The SLT mount arms are intended to be on the right. Looks like a not-difficult mistake to make.

I must admit, I did not read the instructions. I am going out shortly to see if it fixes my alignment problems.

Sorry to but in guys (greetings to you all). I have been reading this thread as today I asked my dealer how much for a 8SE against my Vixen Skypod (4.33" plays 8") I fancied a bigger scope. Now I realize how good the Skypod is after reading all that, and might think more than twice and live with 4.33"

Kind regards and no offense meant.

Geoffrey

Cenk, I am very happy for you, and it makes me a lot happier as well. Ignore my post guys, but any comments on the 8SE would help me to decide.

Regards guys, and forgiveness for butting in.
