Model: wo_slide_base_50mm_guide_rings_gdPart Number: M-GR50IIGD
William Optics 2019 telescopes include a carry handle with integrated saddle that accepts these guidescope rings.
Designed primarily to fit William Optics Rotolock Guidescopes but other guidescopes with a similar tube diameter might fit.
Note: The handles with integrated saddles shown in the photos are for illustration purposes. They are not included but can be purchase separately.
I bought this for my WO 50mm guidescope to replace the existing guide rings (the ones with the 2 centering bolts). As is usual with WO kit it is solidly built.Not sure what other reviewers meant but the scope is rock solid once the clamp bolts are tightened.Maybe is is a newer batch ?I was never happy with the 3 bolt ones as you can never be sure it is exactly fixed and not wobbling.Also these rings automatically align the scope with the dovetail, so no adjustments needed.I replaced the finder dovetail with a short WO vixen rail. It is now extremely well anchored to the mount.No point trying to guide out vibrations ! I knocked off 1 star because of the price.Speedy service from FLO as usual.
I purchased these to hold my William Optics 50mm Guidescope with Rotolock, the exact scope these were apparently made for. They are well made, the finish is nice, they scope fits inside, but the rings do not firmly clamp the scope. Even with the rings tightened up more than I would want to, I can still twist the scope in the rings. I first noticed this when I was changing the USB cable on my guide camera and it rotated. At first I thought it was the Rotolock but it wasnt. The Camera was held securely but the entire guidescope had rotated in the rings. I maybe overly worried and I haven't managed a night guiding yet to test, but I worry when things get cold this will only get worse and any movement or rotation will throw off my guiding. Hopefully it won't but until I have verified it all, I am giving just 3 starts for the finish and expressing some concern over the fit.
