I have not participated in this forum before, but hope someone with more experience can help with this.
I have a 10-inch Meade Starfinder which is awkward to use - problem is that when I first set it up for a viewing session, I have to rotate the OTA such that both my shorty little wife and myself can see through the finder and eyepiece. If i then point the telescope to a different part of the sky I have to undo the rings then rotate the OTA again to reposition the finder and eyepiece. Not only is this cumbersome - I risk dropping the OTA on the ground.

Does anyone know of an aftermarket ring system which allow you to rotate the OTA without undoing the rings?

thanks for any help
