AC456 Primary mirror stabiliser and lock

£15.99 including UK P&P

Works with 10" 12" 16" LX200 Classic and any Meade SCT with a rear cell transit screw fitting hole.

This simple spring-loaded shunt screws in to the main mirror support from the rear of the LX200 through the transit screw hole, and provides a controllable thrust tension to the mirror. The stabiliser will reduce mirror flop/sag and image shift during focusing, and provide a more positive action to focussing by reducing sluggishness. All components are precision turned from aluminium, acetyl and stainless steel. Simple fitting in less than 10 seconds with full instructions included. Based on a design suggested in the MAPUG files.
