Meade forks

Dr Paul Leyland

For what it’s worth, I have heard from a couple of sources that if you want to buy a Meade OTA it can be cheaper to buy one fork-mounted and then throw away the mount than it is to buy one not so encumbered. That is a pretty damning assessment of the quality of a Meade fork mount as it implies its value is negative!

Takeaway message: if your kit is fork mounted, try advertising the OTA and offer to throw in the mount at a small increment in price.

As always, YMMV.
