    1.2m dish on a Diseq motor ? anyone running one without issue?

    i keep toying with the idea of a 1.2m dish - possibly the Gibby - but wonder if theres others?

    Anyone successfully running a 1.2 on a H_H motor? obviously the lighter the better i know weight is an issue on some motors...

    thanks!!

    My new 15.1 kg OP125L Gibi ready to go on my existing TM2600 (with extra brackets thanks to speedy_04's pictures) when I get around to it.

    Although I am finding her smooth curves quite tactile.... not easy to put her outside when I like running my hand over her curves

    Basically the diameter of most stab motors and TM-2600 is not big enough as Gibi dish brackets are designed to go on a larger diameter pole so motor pole requires "padding out" to make secure. You can see this clearly on M*****'s picture here

    Attachment 69139

    and Speedy_04's picture here.

    Attachment 69150

    Speedy's shows it very clearly.

    The dish needs to be pushed away from pole so it doesn't hit the mount, This can be done with the brackets that arrive in box so you only really need the extra bracket to pad out diameter.

    Speedy_04 makes this clear in post #26 on this thread https://www.satpimps.co.uk/showthrea...l-issues/page2

    Attachment 69149

    This pic shows the larger diameter pole it is meant for and the body is very close to mount and needs be pushed forward using the 2 Gibertin box section brackets supplied that Speedy_04 refered to.

    I'm "padding out" by using 2 angle brackets inside the gibi bracket but you can do as mals*t and speedy_o4 has done of course.

    sorry i have been a bit busy and pm has been replied with full instructions. the pics i posted is really what i was advised on how to install the dish. i changed to a STAB 120 HH motor due to my technomate tm2600 served its time and had to much play. i would have used a dark motor but well we will leave that for another day lol
