Vixen Tubed TMB100/8

Here was my solar setup (now sold) with the Vixen tubed TMB.

You can see the balance point on the Vixen is nice, and that a single 7# Casady weight on the GM8 is adequate. You can also see how far the drawtube is extended for bringing a 22 Nagler to focus with a Maxbright diagonal. (Very close to the scope!) I imagine that a 31 Nagler would just about have the drawtube fully racked in.

Now that the 100/8 is sold, I'll spend my time with a Celestron ST80 until all the parts for my TMB 130 f/6 come in.
