I'm presently working out my options for upgrading the set up in my observatory.  Part of this process involves working out how to mount the scopes.

I presently have two refractors, a Skywatcher 80ED and a Revelation 66mm ED.  One of the possible configuration I want to research is mounting the Revelation 66mm ED on top of the  Skywatcher 80ED.  To achieve this I would need to mount the Skywatcher 80ED in a pair of squared off tube rings, similar to those offered by William Optics (example below).

William Optics GT-102 Triplet Refractor

Does anyone know of any company that make a similar style of tube ring that will work with the Skywatcher 80ED?

Thanks

Ahh makes it a bit more awkward ive read that 102mm is correct so pretty much what you have measured. Ts do a 105mm but that might be too big. there has to be some somewhere

Sorry to resurrect this thread but have you ever found the flat top rings for your 80ED ?

Primaluce do a selection of sizes but may cost more than the scope 😂

I finally found this one

Looks a bit on the cheap side compared to the primaluce .. but for the price I think I can afford to test it ;)
