Primaluce Lab PLUS Premium Dovetail Clamp Vixen / Losmandy Compatible - LARGE Clamp for EQ6 Mount
This Large Vixen+Losmandy PLUS Dovetail Clamp for EQ6 allows to install Vixen or Losmandy type dovetail bars on Skywatcher EQ6 telescopes mounts. It includes both the big dovetail clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS and the adapter for the EQ6 type mount. You will have a better connection than with the original EQ6 clamp. This dual clamp offers greater stability, and the larger knobs provide more comfortable and secure installation of the telescope.
Older Skywatcher EQ6 mounst came with only a Vixen type dovetail clamp, but thanks to our dual Losmandy and Vixen dovetail clamp, the user will be able to use both of them. Now you will no longer need to replace the plate of your optical tube, so your old EQ6 will be universal like the most expensive and higher specification mounts!
Our dovetail clamp, is made from a full aluminum block T6061, therefore suitable for medium loads and is red anodized to resist weathering. The installation on the Skywatcher EQ6 is done by replacing the original upper flange with a new flange (supplied with the dovetail clamp) that enables the installation of either Vixen or Losmandy type dovetail bars. The operation is very simple, just remove the original flange, secured by three small grabscrews (wormscrews), place the new flange and secure it with the wormscrews.
It might be worth replacing even the dual clamp of newer mounts as our beautifully machiened clamp will offer higher stability and more comfortable handling due to the larger, longer knobs, and last but not least, it looks better, especially if you are using other Primaluce Lab products, like a refractor telescope with our tube rings, an Eagle or Eagle Observatory or our guidescope set, and you wanted to match the colours...
