You can see how the guide scope is mounted
I bolted the little guide scope bar from underneath the Orion bar ,(the Allen bolt heads I think they were M10 ) cleared the OTA by 2mm
Thanks chris - got the az eq 6 so weight not so much of a concern currently!

Got the 60mm orion guidescope and playing around with mounting it and balancing scope (also using DSLR currently). Looking at your old photo from the 8" - does the DSLR and finder scope not block the guidescopes view?
