Customers who want to use their own primary mirror has to know that the Alkaid travel scopes are balanced for telescopes with a focal ratio between F-4 and F-5. Primary mirrors above the F-5 are difficult to balance. Primary mirrors above the F-5.5 won't be excepted because the Alkaid isn't designed for this large focal ratio.
