Losmandy V-Series Short Universal Dovetail Plate - 7"
Losmandy V-Series Short (7") Universal Dovetail Plate
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. The Losmandy V-Series Short Dovetail Plate is 7" long, 1.7" wide, and weighs 10 ounces.

This plate will not attach to the Takahashi clamshell, as the holes on the dovetail are too narrow to work with the holes on the clamshell.
