About this product
Part Number: PLLPDLOS495PM
Premium quality 495mm PLUS Losmandy dovetail side by side system with large Maxi clamps from Primaluce Lab.
The Side by Side PLUS 495mm Losmandy plate is part of our PLUS system (Prima Luce Universal System) that includes a large variety of other plates, support rings, guide rings and dovetail clamps to offer you the maximum freedom to build your mechanical support system, depending on the application you want to accomplish. Indeed, all the PLUS elements have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting elements, always with maximum rigidity and comfort.
For this application, we designed many elements, including the Losmandy plate 495mm PLUS and large dual Vixen and Losmandy style clamps. 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
The side-by-side plates allow you to install two telescopes in parallel on the same mount and they are useful for both photographic and visual applications. This plate can be connected to any mount with a Losmandy-style saddle mount and the two sides are spaced 455mm apart.

The Quality of the Primaluce Lab Side by Side Solution is outstanding, and you are able to position the large Maxi Clamps across the length of the rail it assists in the balancing of different weight of your telescopes etc.
One important consideration however, is that you will need to have manufactured an spacer plate 10 mm in thickness, to position at the rear of the Maxi Clamp should you wish to move the Maxi clamp from its end and normal mounting position. This spacer is required to provision sufficient clearance between the Losmandy rail plate and the Maxi Clamp locking mechanisms.
Highly recommended if you are prepared to invest in the additional spacer plate.
