Hi
I have ordered a WO GT81 iv and will use it with my NEQ6. In order to improve balancing, I would like to remove the original dovetail, and attach the scope to the WO 400mm Losmandy type D.  (link below)

I know there are three holes on the underside of the mounting rings, and I would like to use all 3, but what thread are they and what’s the distance between them?
Many thanks

I just bought one myself last week and it takes beautiful pics. The distance between mounting holes on the ring is 105mm and you probably could use the original hex screws. Mine only has 2 mounting screws. Hope this helps.
