Orion Wide-to-Narrow Dovetail Adapter Plate

Let's say you have a telescope with a narrow dovetail mounting plate, but a mount fitted with a wide dovetail saddle. It can be costly to safely secure your telescope to the mount. But the Orion Wide-to-Narrow Dovetail Adapter Plate giver mount the ability to attach to a wide range of telescopes without breaking your budget.

This adapter plate increases the versatility of larger mounts by allowing you to connect telescopes or tube ring systems that use a narrow male mounting bar. The Orion Wide-to-Narrow Dovetail Adapter will convert your mount to the narrow "Vixen-style" saddle which accepts the narrow dovetail bars.

The adapter is spring loaded, with an e split-clamp design with two large hand knobs. This design allows the saddle to be opened wide for easy drop-in attachment of the dovetail bar. The adapters are CNC machined throughout. No tools are needed for installation.
