Mount for the 80mm Stellarvue AT1010

Bottom view of the scope showing the weights to balance the refractor. The standoffs are out of oak and the bar is poplar with 2 aluminum rails that the wingnut and carriage bolt clamp onto.

This is a more detailed view of the quick release for the refractor. The rings on the scope are mounted to a retangular piece of 1/8" aluminum which basically slides into the wooden guides. The 2 knobs are then used to clamp the scope in place.
