Orion Narrow Side-by-side Plate 07956







  • Orion Narrow Side-by-side Plate allows you to easily mount two telescope optical tubes to a single mount.


  • The Narrow Side-by-side Plate by Orion attaches to an EQ mount and accepts optical tubes outfiteed with a narrow dovetail mounting plate.


  • Using the Narrow Side-by-side Plate from Orion allows you to reduce the amount of counterweight needed.





The Orion Narrow Side-by-Side Plate allows you to easily mount two telescope optical tubes to a single mount. The Side-by-Side Plate attaches to an EQ mount equipped with a narrow, or "Vixen-style" dovetail saddle, and accepts optical tubes outfitted with a narrow dovetail mounting plate. As well, you can mount an optical tube that is equipped with the tube rings attached to a narrow dovetail mounting plate.






Expand your visual observational abilities by having two telescopes mounted side-by-side. For example, attach one telescope optimized for wide field views and another for high magnification use. You can alternate between wide-field and high-magnification view by looking through the two different telescopes once you have the mount trained on a target object.






For astro-imaging pursuits, an Orion Narrow Side-by-Side plate allows you to mount an imaging telescope and guide scope next to each other instead of in a "piggyback" orientation. This helps in reducing tracking errors and helps simplify your astro-imaging setup. If you wish to change your imaging or guide scope instruments in the middle of a lengthy imaging session, you can easily swap out telescopes when using the Side-by-Side Plate.







Since both mounted instruments are closer to the mount's pivot point, compared to telescopes mounted by piggyback, by using a Side-by-Side Plate you can reduce the amount of counterweight needed. The distance between the two plates is 9 inches and the Narrow Side-by-Side plate measures 11.5 inches wide. Each narrow dovetail saddle measures 9 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. The entire assembly is 1.5 inches in height and weighs 3.85 lbs.






With the Orion Narrow Side-by-Side plate you can take pleasure in using two telescopes on one mount!
