About this product

Model:  ae_v_dovetail_medium

Compatible with most Sky-Watcher Celestron, Vixen, Orion and other mounts with Vixen-type saddles. 

The 'Short' is from machined aluminium.

The 'Medium & 'Long' are from extruded aluminium.

Especially handy for adding to scopes where you want a longer dovetail for balance but the rings need to be closer together than the positions possible on the Medium dovetail as the slots allow you to adjust the position.

Replacement dovetail for my ED72
Tuesday, 29 October 2019  | 

I bought this to replace the short dovetail on my skywatcher ED72 which I found too short to achieve balance on my heq5 mount. I found it perfect as the mounting holes are slotted allowing for perfect placement. For the price itís an excellent well made product

A requirement for my tube
Monday, 23 September 2019  | 

I have the Sky-Watcher Skymax 90 OTA that has a "reversed" dovetail, so I was unable to mount it on my AZ-GTI mount. This bar saved me.
Easy to attach it and great value. I've just removed the "reversed" dovetail and used the same screws to attach it. It is just great.
A no-brain buy for this issue.

15mm dovetail bar
Monday, 15 July 2019  | 

This dovetail was fitted to a Heritage 130P OTA to enable it to be used on an alt/az mount where the saddle is flat not at an angle. The dovetail was a perfect length which enabled the eyepiece and red dot finder to be easily used. Excellent quick service as always from FLO

Fine value for money dovetail bars.

We'll made, decent precision. They are versatile and not so expensive that you would hesitate to drill another hole.
