Hi. I am looking to build a equatorial type mount for my 8 inch newtonian, but am still investigating the specific design. I ran across the idea of an inverted fork mount, but could find nothing more than a brief description. does anyone out there know anything about this kind of mount? would it be worth considering for my scope? any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks!
