nightfisher Posted August 14, 2016 Share Posted August 14, 2016 On the back of a silly comment i made in another post, having been up to Peter Drews centre and see so many binocular refractors it got me thinking i could buy another TS80 F7.5 and parallel mount it to form a bino frac.................so first question, would this be worth doing, would it give me a 160mm frac? second is mounting it, though light it would need to be in Alt/Az to work, on that basis i ruled it out, then while out in garden making a new fence i found myself thinking 18mm Birch ply, and it would be feasible to make a Dob style cradle that moves in alt and az motion, this could be fitted to an EQ5 tripod Im not saying i will go ahead with this half baked idea but im giving it thought 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
