About this product
Part Number: PLLMORVLPM
Premium quality PLUS Maxi Losmandy and Vixen dovetail clamp from Primaluce Lab.
The Maxi Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS is part of our PLUS (Prima Luce Universal System) system which includes a large variety of support rings, plates, guide rings and dovetail clamps to offer you the maximum freedom to build your mechanical system of support, depending on the result that you want to achieve. All the PLUS items have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting other items, always with maximum rigidity and comfort. The Maxi Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS is designed to support heavy loads and offer both Vixen and Losmandy style connectivity.
For this product, we designed many elements, including the Maxi Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS. Each component of the PLUS system is made of Aluminium blocks that are high precision CNC machined. The Aluminium is then sandblasted to achieve a very smooth surface finish and is hard anodised to increase the hardness of the material and protect it from oxidation.
Thanks to this design, the Maxi Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS can be:
- Installed (2 dovetail clamps) on any of our PLUS plates to achieve a side-by-side plate (which allows you to install two telescopes in parallel on the same mount). With the presence of all necessary threaded holes, you can create side-by-side plates either with Vixen or Losmandy connection plate for different mounts.
- installed over a Vixen or Losmandy plate positioned above the telescope support ring: if you install a Vixen or Losmandy PLUS plate above the support rings of your telescope, you can scroll through these dovetail clamps (with the guide rings screwed on) in perfect position to properly balance the weight of the guide telescope.
- Installed on the mount instead of the original clamp.
If you have other brands mechanical accessories, you can still use all the elements of the PLUS system. Indeed we have provided a series of central slots that allow, for example, to fix on these dovetail clamps on plates or rings through a screw.
|Average Rating (1 Review): |Very secure, ideal for heavy telescopes.

I chose this clamp for its 3 separate locking plates and knobs increasing the grip and secure hold of my precious refractors and SCT.
Previously I had a 2 knob clamp but with just 1 locking plate. This Primaluce clamp is very secure and holds my scopes dovetail bars very securely. Much more reassuring.
