6.5" Handles
Another review mentioned that the screws were too long for Vixen PortaMount. I easily replaced them with hex screws from the hardware store and they work great. A good replacement for the original plastic handles from Vixen.

nice little dovetail
This mount will work out perfect under my ota. I have modified it by tapping the two 1/4 inch thru holes out to 5/16 24 threaded . Now it is coupled to my rings and my scope will fit on my alt/az tripod as well as my equatorial mount. This dovetail h...

CGEM Motor Replacement Works Well
The replacement motor motor for my CGEM mount arrived just a few days after ordering it. It was an exact replacement and installed easily. The motor and worked perfectly the first time out. I’m very pleased with the replacement motor.

It works, but the silver
It works, but the silver safety screw doesn't engage the Vixen dovetail correctly. It doesn't sit all the way in the notch where it should.

GSO 176mm Rings
Quality item - they fit perfectly on a old C6 OTA I had. You will need metric 6mm mounting screws (vs. 1/4 x 20 U.S.) - to attach a mounting rail. I was lucky as I just happen to have 2 from a old rail I had. Very reasonably priced. And it's har...

Al-az tripod control arm
What a wonderful and useful tool to increase the benefits of using an Alt-Az mount. I was surprised at how robust it was and the foam handle end makes it comfortable to control the scope without having to torque on the scope.

Received item and it has performed as advertised. One issue I had was that the 1/4x20 hole dimensions on website were incorrect. Overall very happy with purchase.

Well Made, But One Major Caveat ...
This is a well made product, but beware that due to the excessive length of the knurled portion of the set screw, there may be some clearance issues. These do not work on a Vixen Porta II mount due to the lack of clearance between the set screw and t...

Great product but recommend supplying bolts for dovetail.
I bought these rings for an old Meade DS90EC, a 90mm refractor I’ve had for years. The scope originally came with a shaky alt-az mount. Recently I’ve bought an Orion SkyView Pro equatorial mount. These tube rings fit perfectly around the OD of th...
