A little bit of everything

I've gone through some equipment thinning recently and arrived at a stable portable mount made of components from everywhere.
-Tak Lapides modified Teegul with tray
-Robin Cassidy 8" tilt-in saddle
-Universal Astronomics handle and attachment block from my Microstar mount
-Discmount bracket for a Televue Starbeam from my former DM-6
-Discmount AP tripod adapter
-AP Eagle tripod.

Works!

Now if only you had a decent scope instead.

Hey just kidding!!! grin

Does the Casidy attach directly to the Teegul?
Whats the total weight minus scope?

Ivan,

Very nice setup. Do you really prefer the TV Starbeam over a Telrad? Why? (Just wondering.)
