Here's a mount scope combo you don't see everyday. This is my Vixen 103 apo refractor mounted on my Pentax MS-3n equatorial mount. I took an afternoon in the shop to make a saddle plate adapter for the pentax mount so I could use Vixen stlye dovtetails.

Isn't it usually the other way around?? Anybody's refractor on a Vixen SP type mount.

Hi Joplin

Is your Pentax mount designed to work in the Southern hemishere also? ie. will it run backwards?
