Now with both telescopes mounted

by on Jun.08, 2011, under My Equipment

Finally received the DSBS-V side-by-side plate!
Now the Big C9.25 EdgeHD and ED80 can be mounted at the same time, allowing me to use one scope for imaging and the other for autoguiding.
One tiny setback though, the 10kg counterweight isn’t sufficient anymore, I need to add another one or I can’t balance it as it is!

I am no longer using this telescope! I had too much problems getting everything to work, had to buy this and that just to be able to make some photos. In the end I got tired of it and traded it in for a new Apochromatic refractor (Robtics 115mm F7 triplet apo).
