Attaching a SSAG autoguider to a 70mm small refractor

Recommended Posts

Hello Dear SGL Friends,

I've got ideas on attaching this RACI + SSAG to my 70ED; one is with a lot of zip ties.

I would prefer a more solid solution.

Many thanks!

Ah man...

Too easy!

I had it... in the box the RACI came in...

the small size of the screws on the 70ED threw me off...

Ach du lieber Zeit :S

Nope. The two tiny screws that would work, running North and South, at the bottom of the pic,  are just threaded plugs. I don't see where else to attach it.

So I turned the focuser assembly and found more potential mount screws but it looks like it's going to be a tight fit and I have to suitable screws as the present ones seem useless.
