      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!
