Depends on the length of your OTA. If you want to observe at the zenith, the EP needs to be at an accessible height above the ground and not ridiculously low. It the instrument is rear-end heavy it will sit further forward in the saddle plate and not be as low. If the EP becomes too high it's less of an issue because you can rotate the diagonal to have it coming out horizontally.


Cheers Olly. Just thinking of knocking something up in the garden, with a mount permanently attached, under a cover.  Want it to be as low as practicable.
