Product information

Special Package includes a machine aluminium clamp to attach our iPolar to your telescope tube rings, or Vixen and Losmandy dovetail plates.

Metric M6 30mm Centre to Centre hole spacing is shown on the additional images and fits Altair refractor tube rings and dovetail plates, as well as most telescope tube rings with the standard M6 30mm hole spacing.

The optional fixing pack includes 2x Low Profile Head M6 Stainless Steel screws, with 2x corresponding M6 nuts. The screws allow attachment to M6 telescope tube rings and the nuts are required to attach your iPolar clamp to dovetail plates and bars by fastening them on the underside.
