Ladies and gents, 
there is yet another DIY on the A.S.I.G.N. Observatory website. It's a rail and ring mount for a piggyback telescope, on top of your main scope.
 
In this case I have selected an APO ED 80, with a 90mm diameter OTA, but the dimensions can be changed to suit any size scope.
 
The job is about 3/4 of the way through and I should have it finished by the end of the week.

Hi folks,

I have just completed the "Average Handyman" version of DIY scope rings.

Have a look at the step-by-step instructions and photos.

The advanced version is still in the machine and yet to be completed. I will keep you posted.
