These large finderscope/photoguide telescope mounting rings mount a short focal length refractor optical tube or a small catadioptric telescope on an optional Vixen-style dovetail plate. They let you use the second scope as a high power/variable power finderscope for your larger telescope; as a photoguide scope for long exposure deep sky photography; and as an astrograph. The rings are sold as a pair only.
They have a nominal 125mm (5”) internal diameter and will hold optical tubes with an o. d. of 3.1” to 4.75”. Optical tubes with the latter tube o.d. are a very tight fit and allow for very little collimation range. A 4.5” o.d. tube would be a more reasonable maximum. There are three large hand-tighten adjustment screws with non-marring Delrin tips in each ring. These allow you to collimate the refractor with the main scope optics when it is used as a finderscope, or to aim the refractor off-axis to locate an appropriate guide star or photographic target when it is used as a photoguide or astrograph.
The black-anodized rings weigh 1.9 pounds per set. The height from the top of the dovetail plate to the center of the rings is 3.2”. They mount on a Vixen-style dovetail plate with no tools required.
