Stellarvue Tripod Column - M2 Mount to Large Import Tripods - MEC012


Stellarvue MEC12 Heavy Duty Tripod Column
for M2 or M2D Mount Head & Large Import Tripods

The Stellarvue MEC12 column is required to attach the M2 or M2D mount to a large import tripod that uses a 12 mm attachment bolt (such as the Celestron CGEM).

The MEC12 has a diameter of 2.75" and is made in the USA of 6061-t6 aluminum, it is very sturdy! The Stellarvue M2 (with Vixen dovetail shoe) or M2D (with Losmandy dovetail shoe) mount head bolts to the top of the MEC12 column with three side screws. This eliminates rotation between the mount and column. This column will not fit the older-style M1 mount from Stellarvue, as the mounting hole pattern is different.
