Greetings
Having small issue on the proper table height to place Questar7 with the Classic fork mount using the three posts. My main viewing is lunar,solar and planetary.
Thanks
Dennis

That probably depends on your latitude and the height of your eyeball when seated in your preferred chair, as well as the elevation of the object.

The big scope has double the swing of the eyepiece of the 3.5 so you may want to sit for high elevation objects and stand for low.

I acquired legs but never use them.

A sturdy picknick table will do very well, used that for most of my observing with my Questar 7.
