I had a TOA-130 with some Parallax rings that screwed into a losmandy dovetail plate. I then could slide in the dovetail into the saddle. The only thing I did not like is that the screws that went from the rings to the dovetail plate would get in the way of the dovetail plate sliding back off the saddle. I like keeping the refractor in the rings and losmandy plate. It would be nice to just slide off the losmandy plate with the refractor still in the rings. However, to slide it off I have to remove the screws from one of the rings into the losmandy plate. Is there a better setup that you guys have found with rings and a losmandy plate? I mean sure I can just take the refractor out of the rings but I like the added protection of the rings and losmandy plate.
