C5 advice please!

Okay, so I have two goals I need to meet with my orange C5 "Orange Coolius" and I need a friend to help me....

1) How do I mount to a Vixen GP? It has the original "photographic foot" adapter, but I see no way to mount a dovetail bar (kind of want to stay clear of driving screws into this lovely ota). Are there Vixen rings that would fit this size of tube?

2) Did Celestron ever make the original gray hard-shell dew shields for these C5s?

Thanks all for the advice!

Just a few thoughts:

Andy, have you tried Parallax? They make some serious rings for a bunch of diameters and also custom stuff depending on how much you want to spend. From there, you could mount your dovetails of choice. Good luck!
