TS Photo Dovetail Bar EQ5 style with slotted hole and photo thread
The dovetail bar allows attaching telescopes and spotting scopes to mounts with GP style saddle plate and also to matching saddle clamps.
The profile construction reduces weight and also vibrations. The special shape of the surfaces allows connecting of flat surfaces (tube rings and mounting plates), but also of round surfaces (telescope tubes).
Versatile mounting possibilities
The bar has a slotted hole with 100 mm length on both sides. Thus the distance of the tube rings can be varied between 70 mm and 270 mm. Four countersunk bores extend the possibility of variation even further.
The slotted holes and the countersunk bores are both suitable for M6 and 1/4" screws. Socket screws should have a thread with 13 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.
