Simply mount the lightweight dovetail bar to the telescope and you can effortlessly attach accessories by using a suitable saddle plate. Advantages of the dovetail bar
- The dovetail bar is made of aluminum profile. Owing to this construction, the weight can be reduced to 60%, compared with a solid profile bar with comparable stability, low vibration and stiffness.
- The dovetail bar has a support for flat surfaces like the lower part of tube rings. The width is 70 mm - more than most dovetail bars offer. In addition, the bar has different radii for telescopes from 6" to 14" aperture. Thus, the bar can be attached directly to tubes and has full contact to the surface.
- Bores and female threads for almost all adaptions exist. Beside the lateral holes and the three slotted bores for 1/4" and M6 in the middle, the bar also offers two female 1/4" threads for photo adaptions.
The dovetail bar offers a 70 mm wide, flat support surface and radii for telescopes from 150 mm to 400 mm diameter
