Product Description

This Losmandy #GM8SPDV saddle plate mounts on Losmandy GM8, G-11, and Takahashi equatorial mounts. While it will fit the Losmandy G-11 and Takahashi mounts, its short length and weight are a better fit for the GM8 mounts and the shorter length optical tubes that are usually installed on the GM8. It has dual dovetail slots to accept both Losmandy "D" and "V" series dovetail plates, as well as any Vixen-style dovetail plate. A large hand-tighten knob tightens two spring-loaded clamps that grip the appropriate dovetail plate very firmly to hold it in place.

The Losmandy GM8SPDV saddle plate is machined from aluminum and anodized. It weighs 14.5 oz (0.4kg). It measures 1" deep x 4.0" wide x 4.0" long. There are four countersunk bolt holes for connecting to your mount: two on 3" centers and a second set on 35mm centers.
