The Altair TMS Side-by-side package includes:
  • 2x Altair Losmandy Saddle Plate Clamps (LSP-1) with 4x M8 stainless steel screws to fit them to the Losmandy-format dovetail plate.
  • Your choice of hard black or clear silver anodising (please choose colour in the dropdown menu below)
  • Your choice of 250mm, 300mm or 350mm length Losmandy-format Dovetail Plate on which to mount them at either end  (please choose your plate size in the dropdown menu below)
The centre-to-centre separation of two optical tubes side-by-side for each plate length option, is as follows:

LSBS-250 gives 190mm centre-to-centre OTA Separation  
(incl. 2x Losmandy-format clamps, 1x 250mm Losmandy plate)
 
LSBS-300 gives 240mm centre-to-centre OTA Separation  
(incl. 2x Losmandy-format clamps, 1x 300mm Losmandy plate)
 
LSBS-350 gives 290mm centre-to-centre OTA Separation  
(incl. 2x Losmandy-format clamps, 1x 350mm Losmandy plate)
 
This is a very versatile system with minimal waste of components. For example, you can also attach a Vixen-format clamp on one side and a Losmandy-format clamp on the other. Furthermore you can attach Altair Light Weight Guide Scope Rings (GSR range) to each end of the Losmandy-format plates.
 
Tip: How to choose what separation you need: This make things a lot easier to manage when choosing accessories. Just put your two telescopes side by side on a table, and move them next to each other with enough space between them as you judge it. Then measure the centre-to-centre distance of the optical tubes you require, and choose a corresponding Losmandy plate (or Vixen bar). We recommend that you always increase the width a little to allow comfortable clearance for guide scope rings, finders, cables, etc.
