Long Dual Saddle Dovetail
Swapping telescopes is now a breeze. Smaller telescopes often use the lighter, less expensive Vixen-style dovetail bar. Larger telescopes are often equipped with the wider Losmandy-style dovetail bar for its sturdiness. The convenient saddle on this mount clamps down on both types of dovetails.
The saddle on this mount has been elongated to 270 mm (approximately 11 inches) to better support larger optical tubes. This larger clamping surface area will reduce flexure and better stabilize a telescope.
Built-in just below the dovetail saddle is two auxiliary ports and an autoguider port. This makes it easy to plug in extra accessories like the StarSense, WiFi module or ST-4 compatible autoguider. Since the cables for the port are run through the mount, you will no longer have to worry about cable snag.
