If you aren`t familiar with them, you might want to take a look at some of the current Orion tube rings. I have an 8" reflector on their skyview deluxe mount... the tube rings have the screw-to-tighten tube ring screws, but if you undo the fastener a little, it swings out 90 degrees from the tube so you can rotate the tube and then push it back up and retighten without losing your tube ring screws. It`s pretty fast and easy to do in the dark.
