TS Dual Mount - Side-by-Side Telescope Mounting Plate for setting up two telescopes on one mount - Vixen Compatible

Mainly - but not exclusively - used for mounting a guiding telescope next to (in parallel with) the main telescope
 when guiding is necessary by using a second, smaller telescope with a guide camera for precisely guided astrophotography.
This setup reduces the distance between the  telescopes centres of gravity and the mount itself, meaning shorter lever arms, thus relieving your mount from extensive overload and shifts that could otherwise mean higher errors. Therefore this setup is favourable in compare to the more conventional piggyback setup, where the centre of gravity of the second telescope lays at at further distance from the mount...thus achieving perfect balance is more difficult.

Here is a list of some of the compatible telescopes:

Celestron Advanced GT (CG-5) (CAM)
Meade  LXD75
SkyWatcher EQ-4, EQ-5, HEQ5, EQ6
Vixen GP, GP-E, GP-D2, Sphinx

It cannot accept the black or white 15cm short mounting plate, made by SkyWatcher or Vixen (or by some third parties...): Click here!
