Okay so I need help packing this Selsi in its original box. It had been assembled forever and was purchased on Craigs for New Haven.
As you may recall I offered to go to New Haven and buy it for a member here and it is time to ship it...
Chip had suggested a way to get the OTA out of the mount thanks
I am unclear about where the legs go inverted?
No, the whole end is actually the cell, and it all unscrews. Here is a photo of the box for mine, so you can see how it goes together. The only part I'm missing is the hexagonal spacer that goes in the slot toward the left, and holds the tripod legs in place. This is the box style where you invert the legs over the mount and slide the OTA as far forward as possible in the saddle. Obviously, the spreader for yours isn't original. Mine is just a triangular piece of finished plywood with 1" holes drilled in it (and it may not be original either).
Chip sent a pic
see his organized box
then see the pic of the Selsi and then the pic of the box here in Connecticurt
