Starwave Mini Dovetail Clamp for Guidescope Rings - Losmandy Format
Use these 2x mini Losmandy dovetail clamps to attach a pair of guide scope rings to any inverted Losmandy dovetail plate. This is the perfect way to mount your guide scope piggyback style on top of your Altair RC or Refractor.
You can easily loosen the clamps and adjust the spacing between rings. The guide scope can easily be positioned and moved back and forth for the best balance.
Includes 2x clamps for attachment to any Starwave or Altair TMS guide scope rings.
Made from CNC machined aluminium, matte black coated for great looks and high durability.
What's the benefit of this design? There is no possibility of "lateral twisting" with this 2-screw attachment method. Differential flex is therefore not an issue - unlike with cheaper rings. Two steel guide-pins are installed on each clamp, with one on each side of the main clamping thread. This maintains clamping strength and rigidity. This makes the mini-Losmandy dovetail clamp perform just like a small precision vice, without causing Differential flex like with cheaper clamps and rings.
What are the recommended uses?
- To mount your Starwave guide scope rings on an inverted Losmandy plate, "piggyback-style" on top of your telescope for auto-guiding.
- To mount your Altair TMS guide scope rings in the same fashion.
- To mount balancing-weights on your Losmandy dovetail plate - which can be easily slid back and forth for best balance.
