When I've saved up and got my CCD sorted I think I'll get one of these!

Thanks for posting it Pete...

Cheers

Ron if you wait until I get home I have a mounting bracket which adjusts in all directions using adjusting wheels. 

I will dig it out and post up some photos.

I have seen Pete’s adapter and I am going to get one for the Dob! Pete is right, twiddling about with 6 counterintuitive knobs does my head in. ?

Well I have retrieved this from the bottom of a box and here it is.

It is a Sky watcher adjustable guide scope mount.

Full details are here.

It is a rare piece of kit.

Fairly pricey but it is extremely well made and built like a tank.

Complete with the optional adaptor plate

Sounds like something that's very useful.  I'd rather do without the fiddling when trying to webcam with a 3x Barlow.
