Budget DuoScope for a NEQ6 mount

I have an NEQ6 Mount with a c9.25 , Being in my 70’s find it difficult to remove and replace when I want to use my 60 mm Lunt solar telescope. Recently I accidentally came across lunatic astronomical on the web and saw their DuoScope setups and decided to try to do it myself. So , with a gso vixen puck , a small celestron counter weight , some very large washers ,bolts and a fibre washer .I successfully attached the Lunt scope to the counter weight end of the mount. It seems to be very rigid and I’m yet to use the Lunt scope in this configuration. Thought I’d share my progress in this project. pictures attached.
Regards philip
