Product Details

  • This CNC-machined handle was designed to safely carry your Stowaway or Starfire 130GT / GTX with both elegance and security! You'll love the grip of this handle when installing and removing your telescope from your mount, even while wearing gloves in the winter.

    As you can see in the image gallery above, the handle simply attaches to the center hole at the top of the scope rings (NOTE: early rings may not have a center hole). Astro-Physics' dovetail plates are the means in which the scope rings attach on the underside and have a 6.3" front-to-back spacing when used with the Stowaway or Starfire 130GT / GTX telescopes. In turn, this matches wonderfully with the handle.

    If you would like to use this handle with some of Astro-Physics' larger telescopes, you will need a dovetail plate that will span the top of the scope rings. You can easily attach the handle and tighten the screws with a washer and 1/4"-20 nut (NOT supplied) to the plate via the center pass-through holes.

    NOTE: if you store your telescope in its case after every use, the handle may not fit.
