PST mod with SW Evostar

Post by s52sk » Sun Apr 10, 2016 6:21 pm

Hi guys.
I am new at forum. I have buyed PST denkmeier PST and try to made some PST mods. I have SW Evostar ED80 Pro 80/600. From AOK Swiss I have ordered ERF 60mm front filter and PST etalon adapter. At last i put everything together but i did not reach the fokus. The tube from Evostar was just to long.
What to do? I go to shack and try to calculate everything at the computer, and find out that tube is about 7 cm to long. My decision did not take to long. I have to cut off the tube. At my tube work my wife came to me and ask me... Marco, what the [hot place] are you doing this telescope you buyed two days ago ....hehe. But nothing can stop me. So I cut off the tube put everything together, move the telescope to sun and woila. I scream at the picture. My wife did not say anything, I just noticed some strange look in her eyes.
I am happy with my work.

CS Marco
