got lucky

Remounted the OTA.

When performing a two-star alignment test, the Vixen plate slipped in the Orion wide-to-narrow adapter. My heart skipped a beat.

That could have ended in a disaster!

I grabbed the long narrow dovetail, moved the OTA rings, with the aft one around the mirror cell, and bolted everything up.

It worked!
