EQ5 Adaptor for SLT and SkyWatcher Alt-Az mount
As everyone knows the weak point of the Celestron SLT and SkyWatcher Alt-Az mounts is the light-weight tripod. However it's actually quite a simple and inexpensive job to make up an adaptor to allow you to mount them on an EQ5/CG5 type tripod.
I found these very inexpensive (£3.00 delivered !) aluminium disks on eBay. They also do a 20mm thick one.You'll also need two M5 bolts (25mm long)
