Astro-Physics Q4047 Dovetail Saddle Plate Adapter
Q4047 Saddle Plate Adapter...
Since the 8" Dovetail Plate (DOVE08) is so short, an adapter is required to raise it up above the top of the 900 or Mach1GTO declination axis so that the knobs clear. It may also be used to provide additional clearance for the middle knob position of the DOVELM2.
Please Note: This adapter attaches to the Mach1GTO with four 1/4 - 20 x 1" Flat Head Socket Cap Screws. DOVE08's purchased before Nov. 1 2006 did not include these screws in their fastener packets. If you will be using a DOVE08 purchased before Nov. 1, 2006 with this adapter and a Mach1GTO, you will need to order the four 1/4 - 20 x 1 Flat Head Socket Cap Screws separately. If ordering the Q4047 along with a new DOVE08 after Nov. 1, 2006, you will have all the required fasteners. If you need extra screws, please make note in the "comment" section of the shopping cart, or let your salesperson know and they can order them for you.
