Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
will this fit a Celestron Edge HD 1100 ?
Yes, the LO-DC11 dovetail plate will fit the newer as well as the older design for the C11 as well as the 11" EdgeHD.
Does this plate have an adjustment for "cone error"
Not natively. The machining quality of the Losmandy plate and hardware is high enough that cone error adjustment is usually not needed, but you could use thin shims between the dovetail and the brackets if necessary.
Hi, I am new to dovetail plates and piggyback design. Here are my questions: 1) My Celestron NexStar 11 GPS telescope (old style) was purchased round 2002. Will the LO-DC11 dovetail plate fit my telescope? 2) I wish to purchase a Celestron guidescope
Yes, the LO-DC11 will work with your scope. Celestron did not change the dimensions with the C11, only the C9.25, so the plates fit the older C11 scopes. The CE-52309 would be the guidescope I recommend for this system. It fits the LO-DC11: http://www.
Is this the the newer stock ones that have the Laser Engraving with a scale on the edge or the older ones before they starting engraving? I ask this same question on the wrong product please disregard that one. Thank you
All of the current and future DC11 plates are the newer variety with the engraved scale on one side.
