The original and BEST dual saddle. 

Replace your standard Skywatcher HEQ5, EQ6/NEQ6, AZ-EQ6 or Celestron AVX saddle with a dual-saddle device that enables both the popular Vixen (Skywatcher/Celestron) and Losmandy type dovetails to be mounted directly to the mount.  

Manufactured from premium quality black-anodised 6061 Aluminium and stainless steel. 

The split clamp design provides an extremely solid locking surface with maximum contact along the entire length of the saddle. Stainless steel guide pins and spring-loaded design maintains the proper dovetail angles.

Fitting the saddle is a two-minute job: Remove the three black Allen screws just underneath the saddle, lift the original saddle off, put the new one on then re-fit and tighten the three screws - easy!

Choosing the correct puck for your EQ6/NEQ6 mount is easy: Remove the original saddle as per instructions above then check its puck against the picture below. 

Price includes a CNC machined and anodised 'puck' for quick and easy connection to your mount. 

Generally, Pre September 08 EQ6 mounts require the standard-type puck whereas Post September 08 EQ6 mounts require the new-type puck. Don't worry, if you select the wrong one we'll happily change it.

a bit pricey but makes an astronomical difference to the sturdiness of my mount and very high quality and also no more nasty marks from clamping on the dovetail.

ADM EQ6 saddle: What a difference!
Tuesday, 27 December 2011  | 

I can't believe the difference this makes. It feels like the old saddle was just a bit of sticky tape in comparison. It's a beautiful piece of engineering and I can be certain that the weak link in my mount won't be there. Did he say GRIPS LIKE A VICE? Absoultely! No more of those nasty markings on the dovetail either. Definitely recommended.

IT GRIPS LIKE A VICE!!!!!! The stainless steel guide pins allow you to undo one knob at a time fully, so you don't need to keep going back to turn each knob to a little to free your gear.
Well built, solid as a rock, looks good, GRIPS LIKE A VICE!!!!! oh i've already mentioned that, but it does. Holds all my gear with ease, it looks back at me and says is this this all you've got........GRIPS LIKE A VICE.
