The item came on time and as expected it was Losmandy high quality.
I got a ***** APO as a gift a few months ago, and have been using it to take wide-field astro-images, and less often for straightforward viewing. The base of the APO is quite short, and when the scope is loaded up with a focal reducer, a monochrome camera, a filter wheel, and a guide scope, it is necessary to push the entire assemblage toward the front in order to achieve balance in dec. This entails a somewhat precarious hold on the scope and equipment by both the CGX and AVX equatorial mounts from Celestron. I got this long and (somewhat) heavy dovetail to replace the original base on the APO, and I am quite happy with it. The APO now slides back and forth in the equatorial mounts very easily, and is securely grasped by the saddle in each mount; in addition, the side edges of the dovetail are graduated with half-inch markings, which makes it fast and easy to get the assemblage balanced in dec. A third perk is that the original base can be attached to the scope rings at the top, and serves as a great place to attach a smaller dovetail clamp for the guidescope, making the entire setup even more flexible and balance-able in dec.
