Orion ED80T-CF mounted and balanced.

The ADM Losmandy 11″ universal plate came in today. Mounted the clamshell rings right onto it, perfect spacing, just where I wanted it. Tossed it on the mount, added the 3lbs of counterweight to the front, balanced both axes, and voila – done. Focuser drawtube extended 1/2″ past rough focus just to make sure I have some wiggle room in balancing. Here’s a bunch of pics.
