Hi guys!

 

I've been reading about the Pan Handle and other mods that "Manny Myles" has fabricated over the years and I would like to get one too!

 

Does anyone know if he is still "in business"? I send him a PM however I did not get a response.

 

I recently purchased a Porta ii mount and I like it very much (its my first mount so nothing to compare it to) and I see the need for a "pan handle" immediately. So I'm looking for a new one from Manny or a used one from a forum member.

 

Thanks in advance for the info!

 

Clear Skies!

Michael

I was really hoping to hear back from Manny to figure out if he can make me one or if I need to look elsewhere. 
 

Thanks for the suggestions and options if Manny isn’t doing these anymore.

 

i saw a few photos of an adapter he makes that supports the OTA from the bottom would love to find that one

Then there's not much more you can do aside from placing a Wanted Ad or buying one of the similar items that are available.

Thanks for all that replied!
