      I am using a Flip Mate.  It came with the ST4 that I purchased. It is great and makes using the whole setup SO much easier.

      Rob,
      Sounds good.  Which flip mirror are you using.  I'm thinking that a flip mirror will make it a whole lot easier to find guide stars.
       
      Thanks,
      Dave

      I tested the setup last night.  I need to use the extension that comes with the Megrez 80 and then with the focus racked almost all the way back I can get good focus.  This is with the flip mirror as well.  I now have to make some adjustments to the position of the Megrez 80 on top of the C8 in order to better balance the setup since the focus and the adapter puts the ST4 so far back.  Not a problem though.. The ST4 guided very well through the Megrez 80.

      Rob,
      Are you able to get the ST-4 to focus on the Megrez 80 without any extension tubes?  It looks like you've got a flip mirror there - how much focus length does that add?  I find that I need to use the photo extension tube with a T to 1.25" adapter on the end to get mine to focus.
       
      Thanks,
      Dave Sandage
