This ADM Dual Dovetail Adapter for the Skywatcher AZ GTi mount is a fantastic piece of equipment, far superior to the one on the mount. It accepts standard Vixen dovetail bars as well as the much wider Losmandy bars and vixen STYLE bars which may be of a slightly different size than true Vixens! Beautifully machined and easy to fit. Another great ADM product!
Solid mounting and a good upgrade.

Replaces the rather poor cast dovetail mount on the AZ-GTI which was leaving marks on my dovetails and didnít seem at all secure. This one is machined and clamps across the entire face of the mount. Very easy to fit, and inspires confidence that Iím not going to drop my OTA. Itís expensive, but worth it in my view.

Bought to upgrade my skywatcher gti solid as a rock well made no more worries about my telescope falling out of the original mount if you own a skywatcher gti get one of these

Great upgrade - - this is the size of Allen key required for the fixing bolts. ( Thanks to Grandad for never throwing away his tools )
Fitted this adaptor from new

Saw from reviews online that this dovetail adaptor is the perfect addition and upgrade for the Skywatcher AZ GTi mount as it does not mark the mounting bar and grips much more firmly. I didn't use the stock saddle on my AZ GTi, I bought one and fitted it the day my AZ GTi arrived. Next day delivery from FLO excellent service thank you.
Essential Upgrade to AZGTi

I am amazed at how much of an increase in stability upgrading to this clamp has delivered, hadn't realised just how much flexing was coming from the mounting solution - net result, steadier views. Beautifully engineered product that looks great. Quick service from FLO as always. If you have an AZGTi buy this.

This is a beautiful upgrade for my az gti mount. Now no more dovetail markings and the scope is much more secure. As said previously in the reviews you'll need an imperial Allen key to for the saddle. The whole removal of old saddle and this one took 10 minutes.

The first one of these I bought was for a SolarQuest, but that requires a non-standard way of attaching (which is why it is not advertised as for the SolarQuest), but I was happy to do so. The second one was for my recently acquired AZ-GTi, and it installed perfectly. In both cases, the saddle is a substantial improvement over the stock saddle with the usual much firmer clamping, not to mention non-marring with no direct contact from screw bolts. It's ADM, what else can you say?

Ok so I purchased the ADM saddle for the AZ-GTI for two reasons .
1 : The ADM provides a large clamp to hold your scope , therefore giving you the peace of mind that your precious scope will be safely held .
2 : I literally hate marking the dovetail!! With this clamp my dovetail ( a specific one that was paired with my WO ZS73 ) stays mark free .
Anything I didnít like ? Yep , NO instructions for removing the original clamp and fitting the ADM saddle .. zzz . Ok , so YouTube exists and itís a fine reference point .. fortunately. Why instructions canít be printed and supplied with astronomy gear is beyond me . Actually this is quite a simple work through but if you are like me who usually finds the hardest way to do stuff then an instruction or two would be invaluable!
Also , we are in the metric age , arenít we ? .. well , be prepared to source an imperial Allen key , you are going to need it ! I ended up buying a set from Aldi of all places .
All in all I think whilst a non essential purchase the ADM saddle is a product that certainly enhances the functionality of the AZ-GTi mount . That can only be a good thing .
