ADM D Series Side-By-Side Dovetail Plate with MiniMAX Guider

This ADM "D" Series Side-by-Side (SBS) system has a "D" Series 7" saddle on one side and a Mini-MAX guider aiming device, mounted on a 7" VDUP7, on the other.

The ADM Losmandy Style SBS System allows you to mount two telescopes side by side. The connecting bar is 15" long, .75" thick and allows 10" of separation between the two OTA's. The two large saddles are 7" long, .75" thick and have a dual locking, spring loaded clamping mechanism. Stainless steel and anodized aluminum throughout for maximum durability.

The Mini-MAX is a "V" Series ALT/AZ aiming device that clamps onto a VDUP7 which is bolted to the connecting bar on the SBS. This device makes it possible to co-align two optical tubes or purposely offset two optical tubes to find a suitable guidestar for autoguiding. The Mini-MAX was designed entirely for the Vixen "V" series of dovetail bars to help reduce the overall weight to under 2 lb. and is more than capable of handling any guidescope or finderscope under 10 lb. The ADM Mini-MAX offers a generous 10 degrees of Azimuth adjustment and 5 degrees of altitude adjustment. The MAX is 6.4" long and adds approximately 2" of height (from top of dovetail on OTA to bottom dovetail on guidescope/finderscope) and is only 2 lb. Every part of the Mini-Max is CNC machined aircraft quality 6061 aluminum. All components are anodized aluminum and stainless steel for a beautiful finish and long lasting durability.The total weight of the system is 7 lb., 5 oz.
