pacific Design Case for 8″ SCT

 

Product Description

This case fits 8-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube assemblies from both Celestron and Meade. This would include the optical tube assemblies from Celestron German equatorial mounts, as well as those from NexStar Evolution and NexStar SE systems if the optical tube is removed from the fork arm. These latter telescopes will fit the larger PAC-9.25SCT case complete with their fork arms. Telescopes with permanently affixed fork arms, such as the Celestron CPC or Meade LX90, will not fit this type of case. This case measures 21 x 11 x 11 inches.

orion 10144 Counterweight Shaft Upgrade for Atlas EQ-G Mount

 

Product Description

This 1″ diameter counterweight shaft upgrade minimizes flexure, increases stability, and significantly optimizes performance of the Atlas EQ-G GoTo Telescope Mount. The upgrade is thicker than the standard, 3/4″ diameter shaft that comes with the Atlas EQ-G Mount for enhanced stability. Since the upgrade is not retractable like the standard shaft, it eliminates any potentially troublesome weight shifts during tracking of celestial objects, which can wreak havoc on tracking accuracy. The Shaft Upgrade features a threaded Declination axis collar to provide a more rigid and secure coupling to the Atlas EQ-G Telescope Mount. Its 13″ length is a full 2″ longer than the standard Atlas shaft, which allows use of fewer counterweights for balancing most astronomical equipment payloads. A large, threaded “toe-saver” knob at the end of the shaft keeps installed counterweights from falling on the ground (or your feet – ouch!), even if their lock knobs inadvertently become loose. On top of these great performance enhancements, the Counterweight Shaft Upgrade’s attractive chrome finish also gives the Atlas EQ-G Mount a nice aesthetic boost.
