ADM Vixen style saddle

Got these to replace the standard ones on my Skytee 2 mount after discussing with FLO and reading some alarming reports on the safety of the original saddles. They quickly fitted onto the original pucks using the Skytee bolts with a small washer added. Only had a chance to use them a couple of times yet because of the weather but first impressions are positive. They are much more substantial than the Skytee ones and clamped up and held my giant binoculars very securely. The service from FLO was excellent.

Holds a 12. 5Kg 10 inch SCT optical tube assembly perfectly well. I have full confidence in this saddle. The fit and finish is superb - build quality full marks.
Service from FLO excellent with clear website and 2 day delivery in very secure and padded box by 1st class post. Excellent communication on order status by e mail too.

Extremely well built!

This extremely sturdy accessory is absolutely excellent for adding several common 1/4"x20 screw holes on to a Vixel dovetail bar. It clamps on very securely with its perfectly-sized tension knobs and is sufficiently large, heavy and bulky to provide a very secure platform.

I use this accessory to screw on a Synta style finderscope saddle on to a Vixen dovetail bar that sits on top of my Astro-Tech GSO AT8RC telescope. The point is to be able to mount my Orion 50mm Guidescope on to the top-front of the telescope. This makes for a perfectly portable setup whereby I can add this finderscope saddle to any telescope I want that has a Vixen dovetail bar attached to the top.
