Questions & Answers

Product Questions

With the Astrozap AZ-245 can the "245" be interpreted to mean the workable diameter is about 245mm or ~9.5 - 9.6"?

I ask because I need a good light shield to go onto my trusty Orion 8" F/5 Newt where the end rings are right at 233mm. The AZ-237 model says diameter is 9.25" where 237mm is 9.33".. The AZ-237 seems a close fit but too small is bad news of course.

So to make a short question long do you think either the AZ-237 or AZ-245 would work for my 8" F/5 imaging scope?

Thanks in Advance!
