Cheers for that Lewis,
In this configuration it's a good match for my TSA but just lacks the light gathering power.
But at only 450fl compared to 816fl it becomes an excellent grab and go scope that tends to get used more.

Switched to a DM6 from a HH FTX for my 130mm refractor. Will probably need an extension to suit.
Picked up a Vixen 3.4mm also to try and it seems pretty nice observing Jupiter.

Very nice set up
I've the standard 200 mm extension pier for the dm6 which works good for my TSA.
I think there are others that are cylinder type will match the base but you'll probably need an an adapter also.
Those vixen HR are top notch when the conditions are just right!!!
