Skipper Billy Posted October 23, 2020 Share Posted October 23, 2020 I am starting to think about a significant increase in focal length from my current 530mm setup for imaging.This 10" RC caught my eye but my question is quite specific....My remote observatory is very small and I need to be sure that any new scope will fit inside it!Is anyone using a 10" truss tube RC with a filter wheel, electronic focuser and fairly heavy camera???I would appreciate knowing the overall length of such a setup from the back of the camera to the front of the scope and ideally where the centre of gravity lies so I know what the overhang is forward and aft though this is less important as I can add weight to move the CofG.Specifically I will be hanging off the back of it a Lakeside electronic focuser, Atik EFW3 and an Atik 16200 - I will probably also use an off axis guider with a Lodestar but that doesn't weight much.If anyone is using the exact scope I would also appreciate knowing the distance between the two red lines on the attached photo ie the total overall height.Thanks in advance.
