- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsDoes the mounting screw pattern for this match the spacing and size for the star finder mount on older NexStar 5 telescopes that do not have the extra mount holes?Will the piggyback mount work on CPC 1100 telescopes without
additional adapter? I've seen other advertisements showing a additional adapter.I have the nextstar slt 127 which is a Mak Cassegrain. will this work with it? im assuming it fits in the holes for the standard finder scope bracket?Question by: Ike Rodriguez on Aug 17, 2015 7:22:00 PMThis will work, but you need to be careful about the length of the screws used. The telescope tube is tapped for the two holes, but the mirror on the SLT127 is much closer to the same diameter as the tube than a larger SCT telescope, so if the screws go in too far they can obstruct the focusing mechanism by hitting the side of the mirror. You will want to check the screw lengths to make sure they don't go in any deeper than the stock screws for the finder bracket foot.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Aug 18, 2015 11:59:00 AMDoes this work with the Nexstar 11 GPS telescope? If not is there an equivalent? I'm looking to piggyback an old C90 spotting scope.Question by: John B on Jan 23, 2017 2:24:00 PM
