I bought this bar to move my old Celestron Nexstar 8 from itís original alt-an mount to my HEQ5. The product comes complete with all screws, shims etc and is quite substantial. FLO recommended this particular item as I wanted to mount my Skywatcher guide scope onto the C8 and the extra length enables the use of their Vixen style dovetail clamp and finder mounting shoe to the same bar. This approach doesnít require the weight of another bar or the dangerous option of modifying the the C8 OTA.
Conversion is very straight forward and took less than one hour to complete and the C8 is very comfortably mounted on the HEQ 5.
Excellent quality product which does the job..
Great advice from FLO!

Q1. Will the Celestron dovetail also fit the EDGE HD SCT telescopes?
Yes, the Celestron Edge HD and regular SCT telescopes share the same hole pattens to attach the dovetail.
