Problem with the AF1 focuser catching the 150 PDS?

Comments please?

Don't understand what you mean Ron.

How is the focuser catching the 150 there is loads of room in your photo.

You might need a riser block in between the two sets of tube rings to give the extra clearance.

spin the ed80 180 º and have the focus wheel and motor on top.

btw unlike Graham I prefer the side by side set up

 

You may find with the stock rings there will be flex with the small contact area.

OK, I'll try that Steve. graham I meant the focuser motor (AF1) on the ED80.

Andy seems tight but I'll give it a run and check.

 

Thanks all

Ron

Trouble with rotating the scope is I lose 2 attachment shoes?

Might see if I can use the focus motor on the 150PDS??

What’s wrong with the AF1 being on an angle does it matter

Think I've worked out with the AF1 on top and added a shoe at the top end of the ED80.
