Now I am thinking about JMI NGF-CM. Does anybody have any experience with NGF-CM installed on Nexstar 8i? Apparently I will need the Ray's Bracket for it. Any other pro or contra?
I cannot say anything about the Ray Brackets or about the stability of this system since I have a C8-SGT.
Concerning the installation of the NGF-C, it is not difficult at all. I suppose the N8i is basically the same scope as my C8. A visual back adapter collar threads directly onto the rear cell of the scope in place of the star diagonal or visual back. Than you attaches the 2” focuser drawtube to that adapter collar. You can choose to install the 2” to 1.25” visual accessory adapter if necessary. When finished, you just plug in the variable speed hand control. That’s all to it. Very easy to do and very easy to use…
