Was wondering if the foot is dovetailed to fit into vixen mount shoe without the need of bracket etc. I've heard that this telescope is being discontinued so i may be interested in a purchasing one.

I would want to fit it to a porta mount for a light setup.

thanks, andrew

On my big (127) Meade 5000 the built in dovetail rail was not dovetail section for quite long enough to fit into an EQ6 saddle plate but would fit into an HEQ5. However, duly filed for ten minutes it fitted very nicely in an EQ6!
