Product Description

This Losmandy #VSBS side by side adapter incorporates two saddle plates mounted parallel to each other on a Vixen-style dovetail rail to let you install two optical systems on a mount simultaneously. This lets you mount an imaging scope and a photoguide scope side by side, for example. The saddle plates can hold either Losmandy "D" or "V" style dovetail plates or standard Vixen-style dovetails.

The dovetail slots in the two saddles are mounted on the Vixen-style dovetail rail at right angles to the long axis of the dovetail. This allows you to mount the two optical systems side by side on any mount having a Vixen-style dovetail slot in its head by simply rotating the mount head 90 degrees.

One large no-tool knob in each saddle tightens the spring-loaded clamps that lock the optical systems securely in place.

The Losmandy VSBS adapter weighs 2.75 lbs. The total thickness is 1.6" and the saddle plate separation is 9.25", center to center. The side by side plate is made of machined aluminum, anodized black.

Review by:
I use this side by side plate on my G11 so two people can view at the same time. I mount anywhere from an Orion ED80 and a Williams Optics ZenithStar 80 II to an ES ED127CF and a Meade 10 " LX200 EMC and people can't get enough of the views. This plate is very solid and holds my scopes very securely. (Posted on 10/8/2018)

Typical Losmandy precision and solid feel quality. The single knob clamps are secure and easy to use, and the ability to adjust the distance between the 2 clamps helps fine tune the balance with any combination of my scopes. (Posted on 10/6/2018)
