Will the Batinov Mask fit the C6/SCT? - if "Yes!" I am interested.

tnx in adv.

 

I *think* so, as the 150 Max and C6 versions are listed as the same price on FLO: https://www.firstlightoptics.com/bahtinov-focus-masks/starsharp-bahtinov-focus-masks.html
Another SGL member may be able to confirm. I can measure it tomorrow if you like?

I have just sent FLO an email and asked if they can confirm the 150mm sizes are ‘generic’.

Update: most items sold, I'm withdrawing this ad to create a new one just for the Skymax 150. I don't have an option to edit the thread title to include "Withdrawn" -- does anyone know how I can do this?

I think you edit the original first post and that allows you to edit the title as well

Thanks for the reply. I think you're right, but I don't have the "Edit" button next to "Quote" for the early posts in this thread. I'm probably missing something obvious!

      I have looked at the pictures online and it does not give a clue as to how it fastens. Does  it come as a "tube" that slides down over the scope or does it wrap around and is fastened down a seam with velcro or a zip?
      Do the focuser and finder have to be removed to fit if its a "tube"? Are the reinforcing bars split or closed?
      the Scope is a SW400 flexitube but I am guessing that the same fastening applies to any of the smaller scope versions.
      thanks in advance for any relies

      Recently I bought an optical finder for my scope which then allowed me to remove the hulking Telrad from my small refractor. having some spare time today I decided to experiment and shorten my Telrad by quite a bit, I even moved the reticle 3/4 of an inch forward towards the mirror which allowed for an even shorter unit. Replacing the AA batteries is one CR2032 3V battery which works just fine but was just temporarily used as I need a holder for such battery which is on its way, small enough to fit into the half inch space I left for it behind the reticle. Here is where my conundrum lies, as I move the reticle closer to the mirror the projected circles begin to split. This is not a big deal because I actually applied tape over the two outer rings as I have no use for them and only want the innermost circle ⭕️. 
       
      What causes the circles to split as the reticle gets closer to the mirror? I have tried shifting the reticle angle, mirror angle but it remains the same, I suspect it is the lens which is causing this but,  I’m not sure if there is a remedy, anyway, I don’t  care  if the inner circle is actually two rings intertwined because I will use the oblong space between them as the target space.  So far it has been tested but just need the battery holder, you may be wondering about the base, I have never used a Telrad base but always used a small piece of double sided tape at bottom corners of Telrad which adhere to scope rings. It always seemed pointless to adhere a total of 12 inches of tape as those bases use to any scope, try and remove that base later wi to put leaving marks all over the scope. It now measures 4-3/4 inches exactly. This is still a bulky finder compared to most other thin, streamlined reticle finders but, it is far less imposing if I use it on my 102, enough so that I may avoid getting beat up at a star party if I ever mount it on my refractor again lol. 
      Now it’s actually cute! like a iddy bitty wee baby Telrad lol

      Hello Ladies & Gentleman,
      I would in need of require your assistance for my current tube that I have got. 
      I currently have a Celestron Starlight XLT tube and I am looking for a new Finderscope (This one did not come with as I bought it of one of my Uni friends). I am not fussed into the red dot sites and I would like someone similar to the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC ES 8x50. 
      Any questions by all means ask :)
