70mm tube rings for AstroFest!


Anyone out there with a pair of tube rings to fit an 70-80mm diameter guide scope, willing to lend or sell for/at AstroFest?

I'm struggling to find a new set for sale in Australia that aren't the Orion ones (which apparently don't work with a 70mm scope).

The scope + camera weigh ~1.5kg, so they'd need to be able to support that weight without flex and preferably be able to adjust alt/az.

Any pointers appreciated

Not sure if they will help {they sell 87mm also }, but have a 80mm and 95mm set that you could lend {i use the 80mm with a Tak FC-60cb}

Dunk i have a pair of TS substantial guide scope rings that might suit. I measured the internal diametre of 90mm, they are advertised as fitting a 85mm scope. This is the set:

I have had them in my cupboard planning to use them to replace my old ZWO rings but have not got them setup on a dovetail bar yet. You would need to mount them on a top rail or bar. Your welcome to use them. If i had known earlier today i could have sent them to Brisbane by plane when my son flew back there this evening. PM me if you want them. I don't want to sell them but happy to lend them to you for no cost, well maybe postage.
