    Default Cheapest way to mount an Orion 80ED?

    Alan,

    You are correct in that you have to nudge the Telepod mount to track.
    This is really not a big deal however, especially with the mount
    handle attached. And there are thousands of happy Dob owners who
    nudge their scopes to track with good results, of which I am one.
    With a 7 Nagler Type 6 in my Dob, I only have to nudge the scope about
    once every 2 minutes when watching Jupiter or Saturn.

    Tom, I bought an acceptable Alt/Az mount on Ebay for $30 from a guy that has
    sold a lot of them. Meade mounds and they're like new...
