    Default Re: Dobsonian mount for refractors.



    The question was misunderstood. I am not looking for a Dobsonian mount for a refractor telescope-interesting combination, but I agree, difficult to use. I am looking for way to mount a small refractor on my 15” reflector which is mounted on a traditional Dobsonian mount. I would need to mount the refractor either on the mirror box or the UTA. On the mirror box it needs to mounted as high as possible, but since it would be used for EAA, one would not be bending down trying to look through an eye piece. I always thought it would be interesting to be able to easily switch between the two to compare the views. It would be easier to set up 2 refractors or a refractor and a SCT on the same mounts, and probably has been done.

    Oooh, a 7 year old thread. Best to leave the old stuff in the grave where it belongs...

    I put in a reply to your thread, Asteroid, don't know if you've seen it yet. Mounting a refractor on a Dobsonian.

    Gotta close this one though. Too old to pass the muster of the Astronomy Forum Rules and Terms of Service - Part One, The Legal Stuff
