New use for old set of telescope fork mount

Hi all,

Many people who purchase a fork mounted Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope remove the optical tube from the fork and couple it to a german equatorial mount.  However, this then leaves a vacant set of forks.

I was given one of these fork mounts, & I recommissioned it into a fabulous outreach rig.

The article can be found in Telescope Bits & Bobs page of my blog.


I hope this article inspires you to undertake a similar recommissioning of a disused bit of gear.
