I'm in the market for an Edge HD 8" scope, but since I live in Japan, all of the vendors carry the CG-5 variant of the Edge HD 8 (Vixen imports them). I don't have an issue with ordering the CGE (Losmandy-ish) dovetail, but my real question is could I just move the Vixen style bar to the top of the OTA for accessories like a guide scope, etc.? I'm worried about the mounting holes not lining up like I've seen in some posts. I would just order ADM parts (last resort), but the shipping to Japan costs almost as much as the dovetail and there aren't any local vendors that carry ADM.
Hopefully this isn't too much of a noob question and if it's been answered before, please excuse me.
