I take it that you are planning to set the EQ8 up in the nexdome?
Peter,
Thanks for replying
I also downloaded the whole manual but no dimensions for the tripod feet
Iím sure someone on IIS has an EQ8-R mount , they probably donít visit the forum that often
Yes Iíve been tossing the idea around for 6 months or so , the NexDome needs an observatory grade mount as Iím upgrading to a Carbon fibre 10Ē newt and the EQ6-R just wonít cut it at that 18 to 22kg payload , 1200mm + focal length with 5 min + subs
Sort of future proofing the Obs and my imaging

Cheers
Martin
