I was wondering if anyone has used either the TEC or Takahashi turrets with a NP101 or 127?
Were any additional accessories required?
Comments appreciated.

Hi Tom:

I have TEC turret and I used to own a Genesis sdf. I did not own them together though. No accessories (other than 5 favorite eyepieces) are necessary to use the TEC turret. The TEC turret has a 2" nose and about the same optical path length as a 2" diagonal, so it should work beautifully in an NP scope. You simply clamp it in, just like a diagonal.

It is a solidly built item, so it and 5 eyepieces will add some weight to your set up. I load mine with parfocal eyepieces and love it.
