More product information
This black anodized machined aluminum Vixen-Series Losmandy dovetail plate fits the current model Celestron 9.25” and 11” catadioptric optical tubes and Meade 7” Maksutov and 10” catadioptric optical tubes only. Installation on a Celestron 11” optical tube also requires curved mounting blocks #VCB11. The dovetail bolts to the existing mounting holes at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions in the front and rear cells of the optical tube, using the supplied hardware.

Installed on the bottom of the optical tube, the Vixen-style dovetail on the plate allows you to mount your optical tube on a Vixen Polaris, Great Polaris, or Sphinx mount; a Celestron CG-5 or Advanced Series mount; an Orion Sirius or Atlas mount; a Meade LXD-75 mount; or any other mount having a Vixen-style saddle plate.

Since the dovetail plate will mount on either the top or bottom of the optical tube, you can install a dovetail on the top of the optical tube for mounting Losmandy Vixen-Series accessories – piggybacks, photoguide rings, etc. Using the dovetail plate to hold accessories this way can be done with either a German equatorial mount or a fork mount scope.

The dovetail plate measures 0.5” thick x 1.75” wide x 17.25” in length, with 16.0/16.50” hole spacing. It weighs 1.1 lbs. The corners of the dovetail are beveled with a radius curvature, rather than having a sharp 90° corner. This helps prevent the dovetail from hanging up in the mount’s saddle plate if the dovetail is inserted at a slight angle when setting up your scope.
