About this product
Complete kit include two rings, the dovetail bar, dovetail clamps and all necessary mounting hardware - Celestron OTAs normally require mounting blocks whereas most Meade OTAs do not.
- Made from .75" 6061 black-anodized aluminium and stainless steel.
- Guidescope rings are mounted on a mini dovetail assembly for easy removal and balancing.
- Large 3/8" aluminium adjusting screws have 1/4" Delrin tips to help protect the guidescope and minimize image shift during long exposures.
The image above shows a Takahashi FS60C (not included!) in the 100mm rings. When sizing your telescope please remember the rings need to be oversized for several reasons: The Delrin tips on the thumb screws add room, you need room for adjustments and you also need to insert the scope through the rings past the dewshield or focus knobs.

Q1. How does this attach to my Celestron 8" SCT Telescope?
The Mini dovetail guidescope System will fit to the OTA on top in exactly the same way as the dovetail you have on the bottom of the telescope does, You will have suitable screw holes in the correct postions on the telescope to fit the dovetail. It will come with the screws needed to fit it.
