Re: New member - advice on switching from G11 to AP900
Thanks for clearing up the confusion.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I think that Gilles approach, of manufacturing a special AP900 "base to
Losmandy adapter", is a good approach. That way, I can continue to use the
Losmandy standard pier, or on the Losmandy Meade Adapter (MA) option, attached
to an outdoor pillar, or even on a different portable tripod (with another
MA), at a remote site.
It's nice to simple drop and twist an AP900, without having to remove three
The AP900 SPA will be about 2 1/2 inches wider at the base (about 5.5" G11,
vs. 7.75" AP), than the Losmandy G11 base, but that shouldn't make a problem
in stability - or I could just machine a thicker short aluminum cylinder.
Wonder what dimensions Gilles used for his conversion.
