No instructions.

It was not rocket science to fit. But there are different types of screws supplied and it is bit of a guess of which one fits what
A basic guide would have been helpful to ensure proper fitting

Solid, secure bar.

Bought this bar to mount my Meade LX90 8" optical tube onto my EQ mount, having 'de-forked' it. Very secure, three point attachment to the tube at each end, and very solid and secure.

ADM Meade GEM adapter
Thursday, 11 March 2021  | 

This is the perfect adapter for moving from the Meade Classic fork to a modern Equitorial Mount. The radius bars fit the rim of the 10" OTA perfectly and the Losmandy size ADM bar is rigid, perfect for the weight of a 10" OTA. Although there are no instructions, it is obvious which bolt goes where. My only critique would be there are no other fixing holes for any futher accessories: weights, etc. It is probably assumed that Losmandy size clamps would be used to hold anything. Overall, an excellent product.

I can only endorse previous reviews and confirm that this is a necessary and worthwhile upgrade. Replacing the full length Vixen-style dovetail on my Meade 10" SCT has noticeably improved its stability - and my peace of mind. It's worth noting that a couple of different sized hex keys are required for fitting but a nice touch is the screw-in end stops, (at least that what I think they are!), to prevent slippage.

Really see the quality of ADM equipment! Full set of parts to replace existing (flimsy by comparison) Vixen bar with very sturdy Losmandy bar and fitting plates to SCT tube. A worthwhile upgrade

I brought this bar for my Meade LX200 14" ACF - great price, quality machined and milled out to reduce overall weight. Supplied with brackets and all fixings - great fit and excellent service from FLO.

Losmandy Dovetail plate fitting.
Friday, 12 April 2019  | 

The dovetail plate and radius blocks comes with a variety of screws. When fitting to telescope this can be confusing. Fitting instructions should be supplied.

Q1. Will the Celestron dovetail also fit the EDGE HD SCT telescopes?

Yes, the Celestron Edge HD and regular SCT telescopes share the same hole pattens to attach the dovetail.
