Losmandy V Series 7" Universal Dovetail Plate



This Losmandy 7" universal dovetail plate fits the 46 mm dovetail slot of the saddle used on Vixen-style German equatorial mounts (Vixen Great Polaris, Sphinx, or Porta mounts; Celestron CG-5 and Advanced Series mounts; and Meade LXD-75 mounts). It is designed primarily to hold the mounting rings of shorter focal length Astro-Tech, TeleVue, Orion, Takahashi, Vixen, and Meade refractors. Since it is a standard size Vixen dovetail, it could be used to hold many other accessories, as well. It measures 7" long x 1.75" wide x 0.6" thick, and it is anodized black for good looks and durability. It weighs 7 ounces.





The dovetail has a series of 12 mounting holes for installing virtually any configuration of mounting rings. The holes are countersunk on the underside of the dovetail. This assures that the bolts holding the mounting rings will not protrude and keep the dovetail plate from sliding back and forth in the mount saddle for balancing. Thread-in bolts are provided to act as stops to keep the dovetail and optical tube from sliding out of the mount saddle should the mount's locking knob loosen accidentally. The 0.6" thick dovetail is precision-machined of aluminum stock and is anodized black for good looks and durability.
