Review by:
I bought the cradle that goes to the AR102 (not the carbon fiber ED102, which has a bigger tube) and it should work on any scope that has a ~100mm OD optical tube. I used it on a Celestron NexStar 102GT OTA and it fits nicely.

The one I received had a rougher finish than what is shown in the picture (some small casting and machining marks), but it doesn't affect the function.

The slotted handle is a nice feature. Besides giving you a sturdy way to grasp the scope, it supposedly enables you to piggyback a camera or other items with a 1/4" post if you have the right hardware. I've not tried that yet, but saw it mentioned in a review of the AR102.

I would definitely recommend this as an alternative to other 100mm rings in this price range. (Posted on 8/16/2013)
