Hi all, the backend of my C8 Evo HD is getting heavy. Starsense + Celestron lighted reticule 9 x 50 finder + motorfocus + 2 inch diagonal + heavier eye piece. I am waiting for custom foam so i can make something to store this OTA correctly (even if I pull out Starsense and diagonal).
Whats the best way to keep this OTA at home? I would like it as assembled as possible so i dont have to spend time attaching and then calibrating accessories. Because the CG is to the back, I cant just plunk it down on foam, it tends to lean / tip. I am being extra cautious to make sure the accessories dont end up bearing any load - eg. accidentally putting pressure on the motor focus for example.
Simplest option is to park it on the AVX mount but I am worried about the continued ongoing stress on the mount itself.
Suggestions please! Thanks for your help in advance.
