Model: adm_vpa_dovetail_handlePart Number: VPA-HAND
Strong, easily to grasp handle that can be fitted to two ADM VDA adaptors and attached to a Vixen dovetail to allow easy carrying of your telescope OTA.
Fits V Series dovetail bars. Handle – 19cm / 7.5″ Long between centres, 2.5cm / 1″ wide, 6cm / 2.5″ Tall, weight 390g / 14 oz as shown.
As the previous reviewer stated, some of the materials used are not quite what you might expect, especially considering the price. But, the handle fits securely on my 8" StellaLyra Classic Cassegrain, the plastic/rubber gives good grip and it makes mounting/demounting an easier and less worrying experience. It does the job for me.
I expected better quality and assumed aluminium at this price.I am surprised to find it is made of plastic, not aluminium; this means that the sockets which receive the anchor bolts are embedded in what looks like hot glue, so with one tight bolt, the socket starts to spin. Worries mount.These anchors have got be be good, supporting entire weight of an expensive telescope when it is lifted onto the mount.The bolts heads are US imperial, not metric, so watch out.I am going ahead and will use it.....but ....
