TS-Optics Photo Dovetail Bar Vixen GP style with slotted hole and photo thread
The stable dovetail allows attaching heavy instruments like spotting scopes, cameras with telephoto lenses or telescopes to mounts with GP style saddle plates or to photo tripods and tilting heads.
Versatile attachment possibilities
For example, you can attach two tube rings closely together. The distance may vary between 28 mm and 160 mm.
Or connect compact telescopes via a universal mounting plate with more than only one screw. This increases stability significantly. The slotted holes (10 mm depth, length 73 mm) are dimensioned for 1/4" and M6 socket screws. At the countersink, the bar is 5 mm thick, thus we recommend screws with a thread of 10-15 mm length.
The dovetail bar also fits to photo tripods and tilting heads
Exactly in its middle, the bar has a female 1/4" photo thread, so the bar fits to photo tripods and tilting heads. You can attach your telescope or spotting scope to a photo tripod, too. The dovetail bar allows effective balancing, for example if the spotting scope is top-heavy.
