Product Description

This 7.0" diameter x 4.0" high Losmandy adapter lets you mount a Losmandy HGM Titan, HGM 200, or GM200 equatorial head on an adjustable height Meade Giant Field Tripod or permanent pier. The machined aluminum adapter is finished in flat black. The inside top of the adapter is machined to accept a Losmandy HGM Titan, HGM 200, or GM200 equatorial head with no binding. Six holes in the sides of the adapter accommodate the six mounting bolts that hold the equatorial head in place.

The adapter has a 1/2" thick bottom plate for strength and vibration damping. A 1/2" hole in the center and a hole pattern to accommodate the mounting holes on the top of the Meade tripod are drilled into the bottom plate, countersunk on the inside of the adapter, for connection to a tripod or pier. Reaching inside the adapter through the top side, the adapter is bolted to the three wedge mounting holes in the top of the Meade tripod, using three user-supplied hex head bolts. The 1/2" hole in the center of the bottom plate accommodates the single threaded rod coming up through the center of the tripod. A separate user-supplied washer and nut threads onto this rod to tighten the tripod spreader bar rigidly in place and lock the tripod legs open.

There are posts to mount the HGM Titan electronics on the side of the adapter. The adapter can also be used to install a Titan mount on the top of a permanent pier, using the holes machined into the base plate of the adapter.
