I want to piggyback my FS78 on my C8. Who makes rings and a rail system? I would prefer quidescope rings as opposed to mounting rings. Thanks for your help.

Try Losmandy, thats what I use.
ADM has good prices on their stuff.

I believe scopestuff.com and stellarvue.com carries what you are looking for...

Thanks for the info. I am going to try to find the lightest hardware that is available. I am concerned about the weight of the 2 scopes on an ASGT mount. The Losmandy stuff weighs quite a lot. Hoping to find something a bit lighter.

That'll be the Scopestuff gear mentioned above.

Just looked at the Stellarvue items. The price is right, but the Celestron version is under development. I guess I will send them an email and see when it might be available.

ADM's version is less expensive and is available for the C11. Also, it'll fit the ED80, which the Stellarvue rings won't.

Barry and John, never looked at scopestuff before. I think I found what I wanted. Thanks
