have seen people ask the above question over and over. I also own a
WO scope (Megrez 80II ED) and a Meade LXD75 mount and because there
was no readily available adapter to connect them, I set out to
design an adapter that would work with L-bracket equipped scopes and
the Vixen and Vixen clone mounts. I couple of moths ago I started an
astro accessories company (Desert Sky Astro Products) and I sell
this adapter in 4" and 6" long versions. Follow this link to see
them on Astromart:
Several solutions have been proposed on this forum to securely
attach the scopes, such as tapping the second hole on the bracket
and drilling additional holes in the dovetail. While I am sure that
those solutions work, our adapter provides an inexpensive solution
right out of the box, without the need to modify your shiny WO scope
(and probably endanger your warranty).
Thanks. Raul Medina for Desert Sky Astro Products.
