Moravian Instruments 1.75" dovetail adapter (Vixen standard)
This dovetail bar makes it possible to attach the camera directly to a telescope mount when used with a dSLR camera lens.
Very large camera lenses would usually come with a bracket and shoe that would enable connecting them to a dovetail bar (via a 1/4" or 3/8" photo thread) then to a telescope mount, however smaller dSLR camera lenses don't have such bracket and shoe, so it's been a difficult task to use a large Moravian Instruments CCD camera with a smaller (i.e. widefield) dSLR camera lens, until now!
Now this adapter or dovetail bar would be secured to the Moravian Instruments camera's housing and then the camera can be directly attached to a compatible mount via a Vixen compatible clamp. In such setup the Moravian Instruments CCD camera will hold the dSLR camera lens, therefore it is only suitable for not too large camera lenses.
Please note that it also requires the camera front shell with stative mounts, so if you have an older camera, you'd have to replace the front shell to make this work.
Not compatible with OAG.
