Orion Guide Scope Ring Mounting Bar
This rigid, 16" long anodized aluminum Orion Guide Scope Ring Mounting Bar is designed to couple guidescope and guidescope rings to a telescope for guided astrophotography sessions. Using a guidescope and autoguider will help ensure tracking accuracy and improve the quality and sharpness of your astrophotos.
Multiple holes along the Orion Guide Scope Ring Mounting Bar allow rings to be optimally positioned for short or long-tube guidescope telescopes. Pre-drilled through-holes allow easy attachment to SkyView Pro, Sirius, Atlas and Atlas Pro telescopes and mounts.
Not compatible with Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes.

What is the distance between the holes along the bar? Is there a diagram that shows the measurements?
The inner mounting holes are ~4" apart and the outer mounting holes are ~14" apart on-center. The recessed holes for attaching the bar to the rings are ~7.5" and ~11.5" apart on-center. Other combinations of holes could be used to change these spacings if
I have a Meade f/3.3 focal reducer that I use in tandem with my Meade DSI and LX90. The reducer came with 15mm and 30mm spacers. I'd like to try different spacer combinations. Can you tell me if these spacers will thread onto the focal reducer and DS

Is this just a rectangular bar or is it trapezoidal in cross section like a dovetail? Will it fit your guidescope rings with dovetail clamps?
This bar is essentially a long Vixen-style (V-series) dovetail. Any guidescope clamps that are either V-series or dual mount (D and V), will work if you have this bar mounted to the top of your scope rings.
