Fit perfectly on my de-forked classic C-5 -- now I can remount it on a DC compatible "travel" mount for the 2020 solar eclipse!

This is a great alternative
This is a great alternative to control a Celestron AllAz mount directly, instead of using a NexStar hand controller.

Solid, well-machined and nicely designed
Solid, well-machined and nicely designed with large, knob-like tightening bolts. I under-estimated the tube diameter I needed for my ED triplet but these did the job with the extra 'play' in the bolt design. You get what you pay for.

Works fine but had to create slot in one hole to fit the scope. Apps needed a longer screw for that position.

Not what it was intnded for
I used the plate to modify a large video tripod to support my LX90 10" Meade. It worked well. The tripod is all aluminum and is much lighter and more stable than the original rated to support a up to a 400 lbs. camera. Agena has great prices and...

3.5” cradle rings
I bought these rings to secure an Orion ST80 scope. These rings and the bolts that secure them are sturdy. When you are evaluating dovetails be sure that the hole size and spacing between holes will accommodate the size of the bolts and where the rin...

Celestron should align theese at the factory.
Hi, Aligning the etched reticle in this is a lot less than fun. It could have been done at the factory, but NOOO, you have to fiddle with 3 tiny screws for hours trying to get the x centered. Mine arrived with one of the screws inside the finder. I a...

Lots of holes to choose from.

I think I could have made a mounting plate out of wood, but this works fine.

Perfect with illumination
After getting my second AVX, I absolutely needed another polar finder scope. If properly adjusted (following instructions) you can get next-to-no drift during long observing sessions. At the recent lunar eclipse, my Celestron 8SE never drifted out of...

Work perfectly
I used these to attach an 80mm OTA to a Unitron 114 mount. Even though the tube is only 86mm in diameter, these provide a solid connection when tightened all the way down. Just be aware that it is necessary to buy 6mm screws at the length needed, in ...
