The Altair Vixen-format dovetail bars are narrow and light - the prefect option for small telescopes, for example a refractor of up to about 102mm or 4" aperture.

To mount telescopes side-by-side, we recommend the Altair TMS "Small Vixen Dovetail Clamp" which is designed to bolt directly onto either end of our Vixen (or Losmandy) bars and plates with two bolts, for maximum ridigity and strength. (If you order clamps with your bars, we'll include all the stainless steel bolts you need).

A countersunk M6 hole at each end, plus a countersunk centre M6 slot, allows maximum compatibility for attachment to most telescope tube rings on the market today.

Precision CNC machined locally, and Blue anodized to avoid corrosion. Blue looks great and really draws the eye. Who said telescopes had to look boring? We of course offer a black and silver version of this mounting hardware system for those who prefer these colours. Whatever your choice, this is not only a great looking product, it has arguably the best engineering and functionality available on the market today.

Many different combinations are possible using the TMS. In the example below on the left hand side, a VDB-250 (250mm Vixen Dovetail Bar) is used in a side by side arrangement, being held in a lightweight VDC (Vixen Dovetail Clamp), which is in turn bolted directly to the end of a larger 350mm Losmandy Dovetail Bar (LDB). The larger telescope is an 8" Imaging Newtonian with standard tube rings. On the opposite side, a Losmandy Saddle Plate (LSP) is used to mount a 102mm refractor.
