A simple solution for mounting guidescopes and counterweights

  • 1.5" wide and machined for a perfect fit
  • Use with ADM rings or counterweight systems
  • Attaches to OTA using existing mounting screws

Description

ADM Accessories Mini Dovetail System for mounting guidescopes and accessories.  The attachment bar is made from .75" 6061 Aluminum.  It is 1.5" wide with a small channel machined in the underside for a perfect fit.  The lack of radius blocks lowers the center of gravity and lightens the system.  Attaches to OTA using existing mounting srews.  The guidscope rings (sold separately) are mounted on a mini dovetail assembly for easy removal and balancing.


Use option pull-down to select the correct Dovetail Bar for your telescope or mount.  Images above show dovetail with optional rings and telescope.

    These have a perfect fit and finish. Easy to adjust. several scopes can be used on the same rail if you want to change your FOV. They even have a camera mount. They also make the telescope have a cleaner appearance. Greatproduct.

    Why so expensive? This is not high tech.

    Ok, this is a solid piece of metal with no chips, optics or moving parts, probably made [*] for $1 to $5, why does it cost 10x to 15x what it cost ...Read complete review

      Comments about ADM Accessories Mini Dovetail Bars for Mounting:

      I ordered this mini dovetail for the CPC1100. The CPC's are back heavy due to the primary mirror, so this allows for balance and much less tension on the bearings which is obviously important...especially if guiding is on your to-do list. The item arrived very quickly in perfect condition. It came with the proper radius blocks and hardware which made the install incredibly quick and easy. Also, Anthony from ADM is incredibly helpful and stands behind his product.

        Comments about ADM Accessories Mini Dovetail Bars for Mounting:

        I used this to mount my guidescope to a SW-120 ED Pro. I took about 5 minutes (excepting the trip to the hardware store for two 1-inch 1/4 x 20 allen-head screws to affix the bar to the exising scope rings, which fit perfectly. by the way). Well finished,not overly bulky, and solid as an anvil.

            Use on my CPC800 scope to balance for 2" eyepiece adapters and photography equipment.

            Service and delivery comments:

            The deliver was prompt. The equipment arrived to my country expectedly but customs, like always, took its time delaying it for no reason.
