TSOptics Dovetail Mounting Bar Vixen Style - 120 mm Long with Slotted Hole and Screw with 1/4" Photo Thread
The TS Optics PSFOTODEL dovetail plate allows you to attach heavy cameras, spotting scopes, telephoto lenses ... to an astronomical mount.
One screw with 1/4" photo thread is included.
Lenght of the dovetal bar - 120 mm. Lenght of the elongated hole - 100 mm.
(Sometimes we receive stock that is only 100mm long with a 75mm long slot. Please let us know if it's important for you to receive the 120mm version when you order. Thanks.)
The hole accepts 1/4" photo screws and M6 screws
The PS Foto Deluxe is a particularly sturdy dovetail plate. The elongated hole offers a great versatility, for instance you can also use it for attaching a telescope with a pair of tube rings - very helpful for short tube telescopes.
Practical tip from Teleskop-Service:
Many spotting scopes and telescopes have an adaptation bracket with more then one camera tripod thread.
The elongated hole allows you to use more than only one screw to prevent the instrument from unscrewing itself. It allows to use 1/4" photo screws (look to suggested accessories) or metric M6 screws.
The dovetail plate is compatible with the following mounts (among others):
- Vixen: GP2, GPD2, Sphinx ...
- Celestron: Advanced Mount, AS-VX ...
- Skywatcher: EQ3, EQ5, HEQ5 ...
- Meade: LXD and LX Mounts
- Dovetail Bar Holders: Prismenklemme S, DX ... and similar
