Really strong and well made -- but heavy!
Thursday, 27 October 2022  | 

I love ADM kit and it's always my preferred component. They are always very precisely and consistently manufactured. These bars (and I have a few of them) are extremely strong but it's worth mentioning that they are made from solid blocks of aluminium and so are much heavier than ones from other manufacturers that are often made from castings or have a lot of metal machined out to save weight. I actually do sometimes use other (often cheaper) dovetail bars in situations where saving weight is an issue.

The one good thing about reading reviews is you find out what will help you, I got thi item because of a review, not only did it work for my SW ED72 but also on the Asker 400, as per normal FLO were fabulous.

Superior Vixen style bar
Tuesday, 20 April 2021  | 

I bought this bar to replace the standard one on my Skywatcher ED80, which was too short to achieve balance with camera etc attached. The ADM bar is a weighty, well finished item and did the job of helping me balance my 'scope. I am considering purchasing one for my Skywatcher reflector as well. Nicely packed and quickly sent out by FLO.

Quality dovetail
Wednesday, 19 August 2020  | 

I wanted a really decent dovetail bar for my Skywatcher Esprit 100ED I had just purchased, and this was it. The 7" version on a HEQ5 Pro. Solid as a rock.
Fast dispatch from FLO as always.

I made the order Monday this week and today Wednesday it already arrived here in Denmark. Very fast delivery! About the product this dovetail bar is a perfect match for my 114/500 Skywatcher SkyHawk newtonian telescope. I also bought 140mm tube rings for easy balancing of the OTA with a DSLR camera attached to the focuser.

Balancing perfection
Thursday, 20 February 2020  | 

Balancing my SW 72ED on its original bar was impossible for astrophotography without adding weight to the scope, and I didn't want to drill my other SW bar. After advice from FLO I chose the 11" dovetail bar, it is very solid and withe the ADM saddle upgrade it makes everything very secure. Balance is now perfect. Adds a few grams but no worries with that, more than made up for by the benefits.

Balancing act
Tuesday, 14 January 2020  | 

The dovetail bar that I was using with the Skywatcher AZ-GTI mount was a bit on the short side so with a DSLR camera and a heavy TeleVue PowerMate at one end the 80mm refractor it was connected to was badly unbalanced. The 11" ADM has a flat base,which suited the mount so though it was more costly than bars of a similar length but different profile I thought it was worth the money. My set-up is now perfectly balanced but with much greater flexibility to suit other combinations of eyepiece/camera etc. Service from FLO excellent as always.

11" adm vixen dovetail bar

I bought the 11" to use in a Baader dual saddle, where the clamps are about 7" apart. Top quality from ADM as usual, and the service from FLO is 1st class.

11 inch ADM dovetail for ED80 Pro
Saturday, 7 December 2019  | 

FLO were quick to swap out to the smaller 11 inch version when I contacted them about the correct size. Fitted perfectly to the ED80 and has provided more options for balance in DEC. As an added bonus the existing dovetail can be mounted on top if required.
