Vixen invented the universal dovetail that is used by many telescope and mount manufacturers. Vixen scopes and mounts all attach via this system. Use to attach your telescope with Vixen Tube Rings or third party rings with 1/4-20 tpi threaded holes. Other devices such as a camera can also be attached. Interchangeable with the GP tube plate. Two 1/4"-20 tpi bolts included.

Practical solutionPros: Cons: Comments:
This thick and heavy cast dovetail rail is a bit shorter than the typical 8" extruded rail, which is a plus for my application - to hold a short, f/5 refractor tube. My favorite thing about these original Vixen dovetails is how they are cast to "nest" on top of Vixen and Synta EQ mount saddles, a nice feature to have in the dark. I have two of these. Excellent!
