QUEUE D'ARRONDE VIXEN UNIVERSELLE 8", NOIR / VIXEN 8" UNIVERSAL DOVETAIL PLATE, BLACK
This 8" Astro-Tech short universal dovetail plate fits the dovetail slot of the Vixen-style saddle used on current Vixen and Vixen-style altazimuth and German equatorial mounts. Such mounts include the Astro-Tech Voyager altazimuth; Celestron CG-5 and Advanced Series equatorial mounts; Meade LXD-75 equatorial mount; and Vixen Polaris, Great Polaris, and Sphinx equatorials, or Porta altazimuth mounts.
The Astro-Tech universal dovetail is designed primarily to hold the mounting rings of short focal length Astro-Tech, TeleVue, Parks, Takahashi, and Meade refractors, plus those of the smaller Astro-Tech, Questar, Meade, and Celestron catadioptric optical tubes.
The dovetail has two unthreaded 6.9mm diameter mounting holes at the ends of the dovetail and a 0.25" wide x 5" long slot on the plate’s centerline for attaching rings and other accessories using 1/4"-20 or metric bolts. This combination of the slot and the mounting holes allows you to install virtually any configuration of mounting rings.
Available in black, green, red and grey. Green model shown.
