Primaluce Lab 240mm PLUS Losmandy Plate - Dovetail Bar
This Losmandy-style plate from Primaluce Lab is a 240mm long platform from their PLUS series and it is designed to let you install your telescopes on telescope mounts. This medium sized plate is 240mm long and is useful for installing telescopes of medium size, such as refractors up to 130mm and reflectors up to 200mm in diameter on mounts that accept Losmandy-style plates (i.e. the SkyWatcher SkyWatcher AZ-EQ6, or EQ8).Like all the elements of the PLUS system, this plate is made with high precision mechanics (built with CNC machines from aluminum block) and specially designed to enable you to easily install other mechanical components such as support rings, guide rings or dovetail clamps.
The Losmandy plate 240mm PLUS is part of our PLUS system (Prima Luce Universal System) that includes a large variety of other plates, support rings, guide rings and dovetail clamps to offer you the maximum freedom to build your mechanical support system.
Thanks to the particular design, the Losmandy plate 240mm PLUS can be:
- positioned below the support rings to install the telescope on mounts with Losmandy plate
- installed above the support rings to increase the mechanical rigidity of the entire telescope (and allow you to attach other accessories such as dovetail clamps with guide rings to precisely adjust the position of the guide telescope).
- used as a basis to create a side-by-side plate (which allows you to install two telescopes in parallel on a mount with a single Losmandy plate) together with 2 dovetail clamps PLUS.
If you have other brands mechanical accessories, you can still use all the elements of the PLUS system. Indeed we have provided a series of central slots that allow, for example, to fix on this plate support or guide rings through a screw.
