    This handle is great for carrying your scope around. Better than the handle by the focser assembly on my 12in SCT. But I purchased the handle to help me get a better grip while loading the scope onto the mount. The ergonomics of it just didnt work for what I needed. Its not the product’s fault. Its well made and handles my 40lb SCT just fine.

    As I am in my 70’s with some serious health issues, I did not want to drop my C8 while lifting and loading it on my mount. I almost was about to make a DIY handle and a friend from Cloudy Nights showed me this. He saw the prototype at a star party and was very impressed. It solved my problem perfectly. It is extremely well made and slides right on the Losmandy top rail. So no problems locating a balance point to be able to get the scope mounted with out fear of watching a beloved scope shatter. I just feel so much safer using this handle, I can keep a better grip than just my hands on the scope tube.
    I am going to order just another mount plate without the handle to add some other items to the top rail. One other thing nice is the clamping system, it clamps very tight without marking up the rail.
