You have a point there. I was planning to use thicker stock for added weight to lower the eyepiece height, so I can observe seated if possible, but using 1/4 would allow me some room for cell location since I will need to drill a couple more holes into the OTA anyhow (4 to 3).
Should my edge supports work out well on the angles I use for the clips? Maybe use nylon screws to attach the clips and also serve as edge supports?
In your picture, I'm also guessing those are nylon capheads you used for pads? I believe that cell is perfect if I can get all the dimensions straight in my head so I can get it drawn for cutting and do my part correctly. You always do some fine work. It must be nice.
Once I get the plans to my man it will probably take him a while to cut, so I will try to build a ply mounting plate for use while I wait on him.
Edit: Don't know what I was thinking in that second sentence.
