Product Description

This Losmandy DVCM camera piggyback fits both Losmandy "D-plate" and Vixen-style accessory dovetails. It is precision-machined of aluminum and anodized black for long life. It can be used to support a 35mm or DSLR camera and lens for taking long exposure photo wide-field photos while your main scope tracks the sky. The DVCM provides a stable camera platform with a full 360° camera rotation, with no tools needed to mount it securely to your scope.

The base of the Losmandy DVCM has dual slots that fit both the wider Losmandy "D-plate" accessory dovetail plates and narrower Vixen-style dovetail rails. A quick release knob lets you position the DVCM at any point along the length of the dovetail for balancing purposes and lock it securely in place, with no tools needed. A standard 1/4"-20 thread camera attachment bolt extends up through the camera platform of the DVCM to hold your camera. A large plastic knob on the bolt lets you lock the camera securely in place at any desired rotation angle.

The DVCM weighs 10.75 ounces. The height from the top of the dovetail plate to the top of the camera mount with a Losmandy-style "D-plate" is 1.8". Mounted on a Vixen-style dovetail rail, the height is 1.55".
