Replacement Tube rings

Recommended Posts

Where can I get replacement (better) tube rings for my ED80 and 6" F5 Newt?

I've invested in an ADM Side by Side system, new focuser... I think that the weak part of the system now is the tube rings and Dovetails...

I know that I can get a good dovetail from ADM - what about rings...?

Anyone know where I can get some from?

Cheers

Cheers for the link Paul, those rings do look better than the skywatcher ones...

I'll measure the tube(s) tonight and see what ones I need (then save up :headbang: )

Dave, that ADM rings only go up to OD 150mm, the scope is a 6" so I'll be needing rings nearer 200mm OD - but I need to measure first.

I also want the scope to be rigid and not adjustable - I'm trying to reduce flexure.

Cheers

If you decide on made to measure rings can I help?

I roll them in steel with whatever plates you want on the bottom.
