Is anybody using this manual rotator?  Are you getting any tilt?  How well does it work?

I bought one recently for use on a WO GT81 MkII and had to return it...couldn't reach focus with the rotator installed.   Not enough inward focus travel.

I guess one needs to make sure of this before purchase (ooppss).

 

Ended up selling the MkII and bought a new MkIV with integrated rotator.

I am using it with a 6-inch f/4 newtonian and a Nagler Paracorr. Works great, but I had to buy two adapters to get it to fit. Very well made product. No noticeable tilt on my system.

I have two, one on the William Optics Z81 and Flat 6A III and the other is for uses around other reducers with M63 threads like Apex ED reducer with the M63 adapter. Been happy using them. Helps with framing and position objects.
