AZ3 Alt-Az to 3/8" conversion


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys

I have a Skywatcher AZ3 Alt-Az tripod and I would like to mount my AZ-GTI mount head on it. The mount head will fit on 3/8". 

Tripod: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/alt-azimuth/skywatcher-az3-alt-az-mount.html

Mount: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/sky-watcher-az-gti-wifi/sky-watcher-az-gti-wifi-alt-az-mount-tripod.html

Any suggestion how can I achieve the conversion. I want a solution like this https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2720325

Have you looked at how the mount is atteched to the tripod ? I am not familiar with your AZ3 but I think the mount could be attached with a 3/8" bolt which you can fit the AZ GTI straight on to.
