Old Style C8 with a Twist...

Here's my completed set-up...I spend 6 months or so converting this from the old forks to a GEM. Notice the rings on the OTA...I didn't trust the small screws on the old C8 body so I went for two rings by Orion (both with shipping was $25.50!)and they fit perfectly. The trolley was modelled after JMI's, but the similarities stop there...mine is a bit rougher, and I had to use a second-hand tricycle for the parts ; )
