I'm using this for astroimaging with my 8" SCT and 80mm ED refractor permanently set up in my observatory. I'd recommend this being a very solidly built product and very well finished off with very smooth surfaces. The way the Losmandy clamps attach to the dovetail plates is well thought out, and they can be employed in a variety of different scenarios so you aren't restricted in their possible uses. All screws were provided and are also of very high quality. The product is simple and yet sophisticated.

The whole system is very well built and designed, gripping like a vise as I've seen others mention in their comments.
I'd recommend the dual plates without reservation for imaging, especially with heavy triplet refractors or other heavy telescopes.
