Can one put a non-televue telescope on a televue mount, and how well does it work?
I have telepod mount on a panoramic mount. I have an old ranger, which I have used for years, but unfortunately the focuser has recently detached itself from the main body of the telescope. So I am considering buying a skywatcher 72ED apo refractor.
The televue scopes have a sliding bit so one can balance the telescope on the mount, but other telescopes makers don't have that on their telescopes. Is that an important consideration?
Grateful for any advice.
