There you go. Good luck and please share your imaging experience. 


Thanks, very kind of you but I believe I know what I need, an Ioptron mini-pier. Again thanks for your help.

I do not know where you live. I have a half-pier that fits on top of Vixen-style tripods. I can lend it to you if you want to try it. I use it but rarely. Please message me privately if you want to borrow. 


Thanks guys. Preciseparts looks pretty cool but it seems they do optical adapters etc rather than mounts.

I will look into the pier idea.

Hi Martin,
Try Precise Parts.


Maybe you need a "half-pier" to move the mount higher up and away from the tripod? 


I'm trying to set up a rig to do some basic deep sky work on the cheap.

I've got a Celestron CT80 on an Ioptron cube, but with a camera installed the camera can impact the Cube tripod legs.

If there was such a thing as a 2 inch female to female vixen adapter that would seem to solve my problem but I cant see such a thing anywhere. Any advice would be most welcome, thanks, Martin
