I have an Evolution 8 and I would like to mount a Daystar Solar Scout on the OTA so I can use my mount's tracking and remote movement capability. The Daystar comes with a vixen mounting foot and I know I can find a matching bracket for the foot, but how would I attach it to the OTA?
I have found a few adapters with 2 screws that can be attached to the OTA's rim where a finderscope would attach but I think the Daystar is too long and heavy for that. I think attaching it to the OTA with circumferential straps around the OTA would be best. Any thoughts or ideas? I think I have seen this done with larger refracters...just not sure where to get the hardware or what they might even be called?
