Widefield setup on MX, and polar scope installed

Got the ED80T-CF on the MX. Had to fashion counterweights from spare ADM parts for the front to get two of the Versaplate setscrews to contact the Losmandy bar. Otherwise – perfection, ready to shoot. So now I’ve validated all 3 of my imaging scopes, the ED80T-CF, the ES127CF, and the AT8RC all fit perfectly on the mount.

Also installed the Paramount polar scope. Very nice piece, but it was a tight fit with the existing cables that run through the mount however. This should help cut down the error on my first TPoint run.
