I have a Moravian Off Axis Guider to go with my Moravian 16200 Mark I camera.   I want to get a replacement mirror for the OAG.  Does anyone know where I can purchase these replacement mirrors.  I suspect they are pretty standard size.  I am going to measure it tomorrow.  Any sources for these tiny mirrors out there?

This may be tougher than you think.  You might have to get another OAG.   If you are lucky, you may find  a glazier in your area to do the job.  Easiest thing to do is contact Moravian.

 

  OPT has an open box G4 OAG  but do not know if the mirror part is the same as a G3.     Joe

Most OAG's have a 90 degree prism, not a mirror.

Understood,

 

The Moravian has a mirror on a metal 45 degree backing pinned in with two small plastic Delrin screws.
