Would have given it 5* had it not been for the confusing screws supplied - 4 screw 3 different sizes and 2 didn't fit anywhere fortunately i had sufficient longer screws for the OTA that allowed me to install the rear radius block
Installed on the top of a CPC 800 to allow the Starsense camera to be more centralised and adjustable.
This had the added benefit of allow for weight distribution to counteract the heavy eyepiece and camera adapter i have installed.
All in all very good quality product.

Ordered from FLO for the first time - great communication and fast delivery by first class post. Will certainly be ordering again with FLO at some point. The bar is extremely strong and solid as I had hoped for. The fit and finish is super. It came with the exact bolts needed so it took just 5 minutes to fit. The bar fits perfectly against the OTA and is a perfect fit as expected. Highly recommended.
Good quality and works as expected

I got this to remount an old 1990s Celestron tube (Ultima 2000 8inch). The support bars fix tightly into the existing holes at each end of the tube and the dovetail is well made and fit for purpose. Comes with all the allen bolts to fix it. Might be different for other dovetails and not an issue for me, just a watch-out, for the celestron 8inch one you need a couple of imperial sized allen keys (rather than metric). Very happy with it all. Does the job perfectly.

I purchased to swap a Celestron original CGE Bar off a EdgeHD 9.25” so able to use on a Evolution mount. The bar is solid, well made dare I say better feels quality than the CGE and the original dovetail on the original Nexstar 9.25”. Screws are provided and fit perfectly.
Well engineered does job perfectly

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.
ADM Vixen bar fitted to 6SE

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.
