Hello, I need a dovetail to attach rings to. Im trying to use Orion's 80mm Short-tube, Orion's 90mm Ring set, and attach everything as a guidescope to my Skywatcher 8" newtonian. I supose its the same size and ring distance (8,2") as Orion's or Celestron's 8 inch newtonian. Would this dovetail fit? Im afraid it won't so I'm not sure about picking up a longer one, such as the 13".
1)Do you think the dovetail holes will fit on the main tube assembly's rings?
2)Should I go for the bigger one? Just to be sure?

Thank you in advance!
