A very handy hit of kit for those who ZWO cameras with lenses. While not being a split ring, it does provide enough "give" to slot the camera in and clamp it down securely. This ring can then be bolted to a slotted dovetail bar or shoe (depending on your mount setup).
However, for those using heavy lenses (eg: f2 135mm or 200mm+) its more advisable to use the holder ring to support the lens instead - that is if your lens has a non-moving/rotating clamping point of 78mm in diameter. If its slightly less, then you can pad it out with felt or velcro for a better fit. Its far cheaper than a tripod collar, which can cost up to four times more.
