CM1100 Setup

I have the CM1100 setup and use a two inch visual back with a two inch diagonal and two inch eyepieces. Sure, this does add weight to the rear of the scope. To solve the weight imbalance this creates, simply move the scope forward on the dovetail plate. This will balance the scope on the mount and allow you to move it around the sky with ease.

This is a simple but effective solution. Hope it helps you.
