ADM vs Celestron Dovetail

Recommended Posts


Quick question.

9.25 Edge with a SW 72ED Guidescope on a CGX.

Tried OAG and didn’t like “fiddling with the prism depth, spinning around for stars, etc...” so back to the guidescope.

the 9.25 is on the mount via the Celestron dovetail it came with, the standard Celestron orange D type 4 screw mounted.

I put Losmandy on top for the guidescope and it seems so much more rigid I’m thinking of swapping the dovetails and using the ADM with the 9.25 and the Orange Celestron for the guidesope.

Any opinions on adding flexure to guide vs reducing it on main scope?

I know, should probably break down and get a second ADM but this stuff gets expensive really fast if you know what I mean...

The idea of going oag is the flex from the mirror ( mirror shift) so the image train won't show any difference in flex..

Using a guidescope won't correspond with any mirror shift..

That's how I understand it anyway
