Sol’Ex now sports longer Losmandy Bar and push up screw

The aluminium Sol’Ex is wonderfully machined buy very heavy putting a lot of weight on the focuser, increasing risk of deformation in light path and the device falling out of the telescope. In addition, the weight makes balancing the Sky Watcher 72ED Pro telescope difficult using its existing Vixen bar.

I have attached much longer Losmandy bar to the underneath of the Vixen bar so that telescope can be better balanced on mount and in addition a push-up screw on end of bar supports the Sol’Ex weight on the focuser.
