Product Description

This universal dovetail plate fits the 75mm dovetail slot of the "D-Plate" saddle used on current Losmandy G11, HGM Titan, and GM-8 German equatorial mounts. It will also fit older GM-8 mounts that have been upgraded to the wider-dovetail G11 saddle plate, as well as Celestron CGEM, CI-700, CGE, and CGE Pro mounts. 

It is designed primarily to hold the mounting rings of shorter focal length Astro Physics, Astro-Tech, Borg, Celestron, Explore Scientific, Meade, Orion, Parallax, Questar, Stellarvue, Takahashi, TeleVue, Vixen, and William Optics.refractors.

The dovetail has two centerline slots, five centerline holes, and a series of 36 mounting holes on center-to-center separations of 35mm, 60mm, 1.25", 1.5" and 2" for installing virtually any configuration of mounting rings. The holes are countersunk on the underside of the dovetail. This assures that the bolts holding the mounting rings will not protrude and keep the dovetail plate from sliding back and forth in the mount saddle for balancing. Thread-in bolts are provided to act as stops to keep the dovetail and optical tube from sliding out of the mount saddle should the mount's locking knob loosen accidentally. 

As a thoughtful touch, the corners of the 75mm dovetail are rounded to keep them from digging into the saddle and hanging up if the dovetail is not perfectly straight when it is installed on the mount. The 0.5" thick dovetail is precision-machined of aluminum stock. It measures 7" long x 4" wide overall and is anodized black for good looks and durability. It weighs 12 ounces.

Review by:
The plate is solid and machined beautifully. Will mate perfectly to your scope and probably outlive you in terms of indestructible construction. Used a Losmandy Universal Plate after searching for a dovetail for my small Williams Optics 70mm Zenithstart apo. The extra holes allow it to be a versatile plate for a variety of scopes. It's nice to have options with a dovetail. Highly Recommended. (Posted on 1/3/2019)
