Hi i got the above Telescope, and are going to mount a Zwo eaf on it.
Does anyone of you that has mounted the Zwo eaf on this scope care to share how you did it.
I guess you used the four screws that is connecting the focuser to the scope, but i need to know the dia and length on the one you used.
It looks like a 3mm but i have nothing to check it with it also looks that the screw should have a length on 12-15mm combined with the braket for the zwo.
Need to buy the screws since the ones in the Zwo kit doesen't fit.
Thanks👍
Not sure if this is the right place for this question, so feel free to move it.

GKA-

 

God dag i dag.

 

I have the Sky-watcher EVO Star 120ED. When I installed the EAF, the bracket had the holes made in the wrong place, so that the only place for me to put screws was in the middle of the scope plate, but the bracket had the holes covered with metal. I was looking online for some bracket that had holes, but did not find anything. I saw one with shorter length, but I do not know for sure it would fit.

 

So I am thinking some pre-made plate made of aluminum.

 

Good luck.  Dan
