I decided a N114GT being offered on Ebay for cheap $$ would be a good mount for several small scopes I have accumulated over the years - TV Oracle, C5, and 80WA. I'm attaching some pics of the 80wa attached to the mount. I assumed the n114GT would be a beefier mount but someone may clarify this for me. Thanks.

Jim, did you use a Baader dovetail adaptor, or rolled your own?

I seem to remember reading the N114GT has a blind spot at zenith... does it?

I have an N8/Ray's Bracket/Intes Micro 615 Mak setup, but if I come upon a good cheap GT I'd mount my 4lb Borg 100 Achro that way too.

Jim, how did you mount the scope. I have a Borg 100ED and an older N114GT and would like to do this without buying and installing the Bader bracket. Any help would be appreciated.
