1. How many shims do i need to fit a SW 150PDS (6")?
2. The open space underneath the VersaBase - wouldnt light sneak through where the drawtube is?
As tube diameters are not standardised, we can't answer this without knowing the diameter of the telescope tube.
Light intrusion is no problem, as the focuser usually is deeper inside of the telescope than the base plate.
Using NT-strip-shims of Baader VersaBase
for different tube sizes
Our mounting instruction was made on a 8" Newtonian – for these instruments our strip shims (adjustment spacers) are not needed. For other tube diameters, please use our strip shims between the telescope tube and the Baader VersaBase (the base of our BDS-NT Diamond Steeltrack®). You gain up to 4mm height (respectively more if you purchase addiotional strip-shims). Please note the self-explanatory gif to the left.
