HEQ5 Extension tube

Recommended Posts

Look at that bad boy 😎 raised the OTA 16" and will now clear the fence, giving me the opportunity to at least try and get a few pictures of the conjunction. As you can see, I have a very small window of opportunity but hey, you have to try 👍 

Its an interesting fit in that you could end up with it out of alignment with the North leg of the tripod but if you put a mark on the mount and the tripod, install the extension tube, then just line the two marks up and away you go. Also have to say that it makes leveling the mount an absolute doddle. By placing a bubble on the extension tube you can very quickly level it up.
