Telescope Bottom Heavy

Recommended Posts

The problem with the ED80 is that the dovetail/rings interfere with how far forward you can push the scope to balance out the bottom-heaviness.

I read something the other day about adding weight to the front-end of the dovetail bar as a means of evening things out.

Don't know how you'd do it but it sounds feasible (velcro wrist-weights :-)

Hi Fay,

John beat me to linking to my thread.

You definitely need the longer bar if you are starting to put things like cameras on the end.

I had to re drill the longer dovetail bar and it worked no problem. The smaller one is not on top with the spotter scope on.

OVL were very prompt with delivery and their price is very good as well.

Best regards
