How would that affect it?


Hhmmm... I'll get a picture of that scope and have a look...

I can take a couple of photos and post them up if you like. The eyepice isn't two far below that either but probably far enough for the filter to be stable.

What's the surround made of? One solution would be to make the filter with a 235mm diameter and I could cut four strips out where those screws are - they'd actually help to keep it stable imo and they'd prevent any rotation.

Good idea about the slip ways Steve. And yes, go ahead and send me a picture or two!

Excellent, thanks Steve. I'll do my best. I'm getting back on track after a messed up couple of weeks now. Just last night, I got my settings back working on my pc after a W2K update screwed up everything. Had no internet connections, or networkings...

LOL - I know that feeling :D Let me know - like I said you're not all that far from me anyway so we can meet up fairly easily if it can be done.
