QUEUE D'ARRONDE LOSMANDY UNIVERSELLE 8", NOIR / LOSMANDY 8" UNIVERSAL DOVETAIL PLATE, BLACK
This Astro-Tech 7.9" short universal dovetail plate fits the dovetail slot of the “D-Plate" saddle used on current Losmandy G11, HGM Titan, and GM-8 German equatorial mounts. It will also fit older GM-8 mounts that have been upgraded to the wider-dovetail G11 saddle plate, as well as fitting Celestron CI-700, CGE, CGEM and CGE Pro mounts.
The Astro-Tech short universal plate is designed primarily to hold the mounting rings of shorter focal length Astro-Tech, TeleVue, Parks, Takahashi, Vixen, and Meade refractors. It will also hold the mounting rings of the smaller Astro-Tech, Questar, Meade, and Celestron catadioptric optical tubes.
The dovetail has a series of 19 unthreaded 6.9mm diameter mounting holes for attaching rings and other accessories using 1/4"-20 or metric bolts. One hole is on the plate’s centerline, plus there are 9 pairs of holes on 60mm centers extending the length of the plate. There is also a 0.25" wide x 5" long slot on the plate’s centerline. This combination of mounting holes and slot allows you to install virtually any configuration of mounting rings.
Available in green and black. Green model shown.
