Takahashi Tube Holder for FS-78/Sky 90
A tube holder does exactly as the name implies...it holds the tube in a clam-shell-like ring so that the OTA can be mounted to a Takahashi mount. The tube holder has a 1/4-20 thread at the bottom so that the user can attach the telescope to a standard photographic tripod if they wish. This product, the Takahashi Tube Holder for FS-78/Sky 90 is designed expressly for supporting the Tak FS-78/Sky 90 scope models. It is also compatible with the Takahashi FC100-DF models.

Product QuestionsHello, i would like to know if this product is suitable for may setup: skywacther equinox 80ED and a skywacther HEQ5 pro. If not, do you have any other suggestion to me? Thanks a lot AlmirQuestion by: Almir on Jul 23, 2014 7:45:19 AMThis tube holder has an inner diameter (ID) of 95mm and is for the Takahashi FSQ-85/Sky-90, and FC-76DS scope. The holes on the bottom are 8mm and are designed to attach to a Takahashi mount or compatible BT-Tech dovetail.
The Equinox 80ED has a tube diameter of 100mm - too large for this Takahashi tube holder. You would need a set of rings specially made for this tube by Parallax (http://www.optcorp.com/parallax-standard-rings-for-4-od-tubes.html - You need to specifically ask for 100mm ID). You then need a Vixen Style diagonal to bridge the rings and attach to your mount.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Jul 23, 2014 12:32:48 PM
