Helios 120 Mods.

Recommended Posts



Nothing too exciting but I have been modding the latest edition to my herd.

First job was to flock the dew shield with dc fix velour.

Next came a solar filter cell fitted inside the cap. Baader film with a ply holder. For use with the smaller cap removed only.

Lastly a telrad base holder that doubles as a handle to assist with lifting the scope on and off the mount.
