Safely attach telescope optical tubes with Farpoint Heavy-Duty Dovetail Plate – Celestron 14 Inch SCT.
Losmandy “D” size heavy-duty dovetail support plate and radius blocks for Celestron C-14 optical tube assembly. This dovetail is 1.5″ thick (twice as thick as the standard) and many times stiffer, yet weighs only 6 pounds.
The Losmandy-style dovetail that has become the standard for attaching Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube assemblies to German equatorial mounts, was originally designed as an accessory mounting device and was not intended to carry the full weight of a telescope the size of the C-14. With the advent of high-precision telescope mounts, automated pointing, and unattended imaging, the time has come for an upgrade to your support system.
The primary benefit of a thicker, stiffer dovetail support bar is decreased vibration, which eases wind sensitivity and reduces telescope settling time after a pointing move. In addition, decreased deflection of the support bar improves pointing accuracy and reduces the effort required by auto-guiding systems. Not to mention, the spacecraft-like light-weighting and classic Farpoint fit, finish, and flair will make your rig the envy of your friends!
