About this product
Part Number: PLLMORVLPB
Premium quality PLUS Big Losmandy and Vixen dovetail clamp from Primaluce Lab.
The Big Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS is part of our system PLUS (Prima Luce Universal 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 application that you want to achieve. Indeed, all the PLUS elements have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting elements, always with maximum rigidity and comfort. The Big Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS is designed to support heavy loads.
For this application, we designed many elements, including the 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 anodised (hard anodised) to increase the hardness of the material and protect it from oxidation.
Thanks to the particular design, the 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). Thanks to 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 Egle to connect it on Vixen and Losmandy style dovetails.
- With the right flange it allows to connect also Losmandy dovetail telescope on Skywatcher HEQ5 and AZ-EQ5 mount
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.

I purchased this as I already had an identical one and the 350mm Primaluce Losmandy to match , with this I made an extra wide side by side mounting system.
I actually mounted guide rings in the centre and so this is part of a triple scope arrangement, used on my NEQ6Pro
It all works perfectly , holds everything very securely. Two ED scopes and an ST80 guidescope in the centre.
It is expensive , but you get what you pay for , very tight tolerances so everything lines up well and the double clamp system holds my 4 inch ED very securely.
I align the guidescope to whichever ED on the outside is imaging, the other ED is used for visual (one wide and one less wide ED so the camera swaps depending on the target).
While not absolutely aligned the 2 outside scopes are very very near to each other, as near as I need them to be to be able to take a look at the sky before I go off to the warm room to begin imaging.
With both visual and photographic scopes always ready , it mean even short clear spells can be utilised without messing around swapping scopes over.
