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 ...

Nice but not for the 90mm
This is a nice economical Vixen style dovetail plate for the Coronado scopes. I put it on my double stacked SolarMax II and I just wasn't feeling confident. Not so much with this piece as I was with the connection to the mount. The DS 90mm is qu...

Slo Mo Cable with Rosette Handle
Perfect fit but miss having the larger, fist size handles. Rosette is okay but just not as functional for arthritic hands.

Well Built
This was a bit larger and heavier than I expected but it is very high quality. I use it to lock my guide scope to Losmandy rail. Expected I would need two but since this is larger than I was expecting I ended up using one. The holes were drilled perf...

Great value
They are simple things and do their job as expected. A couple small criticisms, the plastic knobs just make you feel like you’re interacting with plastic. They work just fine, just look and feel cheap. The other, the holes go clear through. so be c...

Perfect Fit
Received the control arm this morning. Installed on my Porta II in 5 minutes as advertised. Tested use with the scopes I intend to use with the mount — SV70ED (f/6) & SV80L (f/7.5). The adjustment screws on the Porta II allowed just the right a...

Good Rings
Nice quality and not too heavy. They need a little extra felt to fit snugly around my Celestron Nexstar C8i (Silver Tube)

Problem solved
This right ascension motor unit solved my problem of a run-away polar axis of my Celestron GEM. However, taking the old motor unit apart didn't reveal any obvious damage, so why has this happened to me TWICE in two years? Anyway, I'm happy ...

GSO voyager style mount
So far have only used it 3x for my 4” F6 refractor. Lightweight. Beats my Gibraltar since it has larger bearing surfaces and slow motion controls. No instructions, but any can be configured for arm on left or right, terrestrial arm up or Astro arm ...
