Losmandy V-Series Dovetail Plate for 8" Meade or Celestron OTA - DISCONTINUED

Losmandy V-Series Dovetail Plate for Meade or Celestron 8" OTA

The Losmandy V-Series consists of dovetail plates and other accessories that have the same dimensions as a Vixen-type dovetail, which is standard in the industry, for the most part. Losmandy V-Series can be mounted to many Celestron, Orion, Vixen, and Meade systems, and it all starts with the dovetail plate. The V-Series Dovetail plates can be mounted to the top and/or bottom of your tube assembly, which will in turn accept all V series accessories, making it possible to use both sides of the tube for equipment.

The V-series dovetail plates, like all accessories in the Losmandy line, are machined for lightness and rigidity from aluminum stock, then black anodized for a tough, corrosion-free surface.

Please Note: If you have a Celestron 8" OTA with a hole separation of 1.75", you will also need to purchase the Losmandy V-Series Dovetail Brackets. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call OPT toll-free at 1-800-483-6287 and we'll help you get the correct parts.

  • How does one balance the Celestron Nexstar 6/8 SE Mount
