Re: safe way to load the OTA on the MACH2

That is one thing I neglected to mention. A safety stop on the upper-end of the dovetail bar. Thanks for the reminder Joe.
I like to use the Losmandy DVA D-style ring bases (or an ADM DPA-D + "Rosette Knob Hand Tool") as a quick-on and quick-off safety stop. You can even put it at the right spot that gets the OTA balancing right the first time without further adjustment. They also provide a big edge to rest the OTA weight on while you take one hand to crank the bracket knobs. Make sure to crank them down securely so a sliding scope won't knock it right off the end of a dovetail bar.
I hope this helps.
