rikyuu Posted December 12, 2008 Share Posted December 12, 2008 Quick question, when mounting my 10" Newt onto the EQ6, I've had the scope rings and dovetail bar already fastened around the scope, then I mount the whole lot onto the EQ6. This proves difficult though as the whole lot weighs in at 17.5kg (because of a zoom lens also attached to the rings) and it's hard to lift it all up to chest height and slot the dove tail into the mount whilst holding it and tightening the wing nuts! I had a thought the other night that maybe I'm doing it wrong and the dovetail and rings should be attached to the EQ6 first, then the Newt clamped in.What's the 'normal' way this is done?Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
