Hello all. received my new scope a couple of days ago. Tak. CCA250 which is native 1250mm @ F5. All I gotta do now is figure if it will fit and if the mount will carry the load. Both will be close.
Thanks, Mike H.

Oh my goodness! That is one NICE 10" astrograph!

I'd have to guess you will be pushing the weight limits of that Losmandy G-11 mount if that is what you are still using. Hope it works out.

Thanks Dave. You know I hope it works but if not I will be investing in a new mount. I was going to keep the TV127is that I use but I could put it up for sale or-------------------------------------I saw a piece that would make it possible to mount both scopes side by side. Now that sounds alright! Laughing Out Loud Laughing Out Loud

Mike - nice scope - maybe you could test it at the Lake Ft. Smith Star Party & let the "little ones" put their grubby little fingers around the focus knob!
