Apologies if this is the wrong forum. We really need a CCD subcategory under "equipment," but i digress. This didn't really belong in the beginner forum since this isn't beginner equipment (I'm in way over my head, I know...)
I have had an STT 8300 with self guiding filter wheel for quite some time and haven't used it yet other than to test dark frames.
I picked up an AO8 on CN a few weeks ago and ordered the requisite plate to convert it to the T version. There was an order mixup so the plate didn't arrive till last night.
The AO8 came with a square plate which had a rhreaded opening, but no caps. Boight used, but the shipping foam was on both sides of the optical lens. The self guiding filter wheel has a circular piece with 4 screws. My 2" adapter nosepiece is threaded into the circular piece.
I found the instructions quite lacking. There is no update to the instructions that I could find for the AO8T.
Here's what I came up with on my own (picture essay)
