Ask a Question
  • Will this bracket fit onto my Celestron Celestar 8 with a 6 x 30mm Finder Scope?

    Yes, but you will need to remove the 6x30 finder bracket and you will need a 50m scope to fit into the new, larger bracket. Please contact us if you have any questions.

  • Does this Antares "Quick Release Finder Bracket", Antares item code: F50DTB fit my (NON-Edge) year 2000 standard C11 SCT? Will my standard Celestron #51611 straight through 9x50 finder fit into this Antares bracket / rings?

    Yes, the hole pattern used for mounting this bracket is the same for all Celestron SCT scopes 8" and larger going back to the 1970's. Your 51611 finder should have no trouble fitting into this bracket.

  • This bracket will work for the Antares 7x50 illuminated finderscope? The 8" SCT part you mention will work on the Meade 8" LX200GPS, sliding into the original finderscope slot?

    Yes, this will work for the Antares 7x50 finderscope. It includes a mounting bracket that will replace the Meade mounting bracket.

  • Is this bracket compatible with an Orion dovetail base/shoe? I believe the Orion is the same as the Vixen.

    Unfortunately, no. This base is designed to bolt onto an SCT, and the quick release part is not compatible with Orion/Vixen.
