Hope the weather gods smile on you - looking forward to seeing the first images!

Side by side tandem mounted like that, do you need two dome geometry setups (depending on which scope you're using) with different optical axis offsets?

Cheers, Marcus
Ah! Thanks indeed from a fellow purveyor of fine instruments

With the RCOS and the AP155 two pointing models certainly helped, but I suspect at similar focal lengths they should be able to use the same model...well, that's plan A.

With around a 50% obstruction, this is not a visual scope for the purists.
But that's not why it's here
