Tube rings for LS50THa?

Post by 04Stefan07 » Sat Sep 19, 2015 7:36 am

Are there any tube rings for this model of Lunt so I can mount a scope on top of it?

Would I be better mounting the Lunt on an Orion Short tube 80 or the other way around?

Lunt on the 80, or, do a side by side mounting.

What would be the best way to attach the Lunt on the 80? I already have the short Lunt dovetail but not sure if that helps.

Get another pair or tube rings for the 80 and then just fix the 50 to these.

Sounds good.

I have my Orion Shorttube ordered but I am on holiday at the moment. Was hoping to order the correct sized dovetail for the Lunt 50 but can't take measurements. There's either the 150 or 300 mm that will suit mounting it on the Orion.
