Hello all -



I am considering a G11. What is the diameter of the base of the

mount? IIRC it is somewhere over 5.5" but 6". This does not have to

be precise.



Thanks

Dan

Hi Dan,



Make yourself life easy and get a MA adapter from Losmandy. The outer

diameter is 6", the inner diameter is 5.5" and the height is 4". The

adapter costs about US $ 90.00 and you have no need to make any special

adapters.

That is what the MA adapter looks like. It has a 1/2" hole in the

center and the 2 ears to fasten the Gemini control box.

I just ordered one of these yesterday from OPT (Oceanside Photo & Tele).

Their price is $79.

Thanks Ranier and Jim -



I have seen this part but I have a flange on top of my pier that

prevents me from using it. This would work perfectly if the bottom

plate was removed. Maybe I will call Losmandy and see if they could

provide me with one. Thanks again -

Hi,



I do not understand that. How does your flange look like ?
