Compatible with most Sky-Watcher Celestron, Vixen, Orion and other mounts with Vixen-type saddles.
The 'Short' is from machined 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.

I ordered the short version of this budget bar and was pleasantly surprised at the heft and solidity of the bar when received, good finish to it too. Unlike the two longer bars available, this one is machined from solid and is very substantial. Kudos also to FLO for a very rapid delivery to my far flung island!

It's a nice dovetail bar. I bought it to mount my AzGti to a William Optics wedge because it was recommended to me by a fellow SGL member. It's flat so the AzGti mounts nicely onto it and plenty of positioning options with the two long openings on the dovetail bar.

Replacement bar for my used st120 after it fell off my eq5 mount. Much more secure now.

Nice item,well finished for the price ans solid,the only small "gripe" is that the screws the other equipment screws onto are not able to be permanently fixed to the bar with say a circlip.
Good, basic, solid, cheap dovetail bar

I perused many dovetail bars online and became wary of some brands (such as William Optics) with unusually narrow widths as low as 41.74 mm that would have been loose in my Starwave clamp that only goes down to 42.0 mm. The width of this dovetail is 42.9 mm and gives a secure fit. The long slots mean that the bar will probably fit your scope no matter where your telescope mounting holes are. The price is very good so I bought two to fit out a couple of scopes.

Needed a longer bar than the standard 210mm supplied with the ED100. This one was not only good value but does the job perfectly. No flex or twist. Absolutely great on the ED100 and fits the ADM EQ5 saddle replacement. The 210mm is too short.

A good solid dovetail bar that has allowed a small scope and my SLR camera to sit side by side after drilling and tapping a couple of securing points for the camera. Very cost effective method with the usual efficient service that one has come to expect and appreciate from FLO

Very nice piece of kit. Well made, solid but not overly heavy.
I bought some additional 1/4" Socket Head UNC Bolts (x2) 3/4" and 1"just in case, but the bar comes with 1 x 1/2"and 1 x 3/4" and they were fine.
