What are these strange yellow boxes I wonder?

If it's what I think it is. One thing of interest would be how much lighter it is compared with an AZ100?
i.e. Can you move around the AZ75 + tripod a lot easier than the AZ100 on a planet tripod.
Also what half-pillar works with it? Maybe Rowan should produce a matching pillar for the AZ100 and AZ75?
How well it supports an LZOS 130/F6?

Yes it does John 😄

Where did you get yours again 🤔

Here you go. Plenty of lengths to choose from. Easiest to get the length that lets you use the slots in the top dovetail but I used a full length handle and drilled new mounting holes.

The WO diag is a good match for the CC. 👍🏻

Bet you’re now checking out every weather forecast. 😁

Another “me being the postman “ as I travelled past the Widescreen Centre today …I bought  a nice  11/4” Williams optics dielectric diagonal ( I was going to go for the 2” but the additional weight wasn’t welcome on my small scopes :)

Just bought the StellaLyra 8inch f/8 Ritchey Chretien.  As I like to name all my astronomy gear, I have decided to call it Lionel (Lionel Ritchey Chretian 🤣🤣🤣). FYI I have named my Barlow lens Gary 🤣🤣.

Now just need to figure out/learn how to collimate, so if anyone has any good instructions let me know!
