would this dovetail fit an 8 inch celestron gray color? I believe the model is 8i or N8i? Thanks
Hello Michael, This will indeed fit that telescope so that you can mount this on any mount that has a Vixen style dovetail saddle.
Will this fit an Celestron Edge HD 800 OTA to be mounted on an Advanced VX mount?
Yes, this bar will work for either the 8" SCT or EdgeHD and is compatible with the AVX mount.

Dear Sir or Madam. I am about to "defork" my celestron C8 from the Alt-Az mount. Planning to fit it to my SW AZEQ6 GOTO and my Orion Atlas Pro. Are those the needed dovetails? Att, Fernando
