Model: adm_dovetail_ota-1Part Number: VM8Brand: ADM
Vixen Style Dovetail for the Celestron and Meade OTA's.
Fits most popular mounts from Skywatcher, Celestron, Vixen and others.
The 8" bar is 14" long and 5/8" thick.
Attaches directly to the OTA using the existing holes.
The Celestron Versions include two radius blocks.
All necessary hardware included.
Very easy to fit to my Meade SCT using the supplied slightly longer hex bolts which exactly match the originals. Took a couple of minutes to fit and provide a secure mounting for camera or whatever. A quality bar and highly recommended.
I have a Baader SCT steeltrack, 2" diagonal etc. fitted to my 6SE and I could not balance it correctly - way rear heavy. My solution was to use an 8" Celestron ADM Dovetail set and modify to correctly fit the 6SE's profile. I can now balance my setup perfectly and with the spacers that were supplied in the kit, I get a better clearance from the mounting arm than had been possible with the original bar. It does require some tooling changes but was very worthwhile. As mentioned by the previous reviewer (not related) the ADM parts are top quality.
I was a bit sceptical of mounting such a large telescope as a meade 10" sct on a vixen dovetail, but having received and fitted it to my SCT i am very confident in the ability to support the scope. The bar is of quality construction.
