There are several types of attachment methods for combining telescopes and their mountings. Below are grouped the types we offer to enable all our telescopes and mounting combinations to be utilised.

Losmandy Dovetail Plates
f you have a Losmandy mounting or a Paramount, and wish to mount one of our CT, AG telescopes, you will need one our our Losmandy Dovetail plates. These are both a solid base plate and suitable dovetail machined from a solid aero grade aluminium plate as shown in the photograph here. As a rule of thumb, we recommend the plate you choose be the same length as the aperture of your telescope. ODK’s are already fitted with the correct length dovetail plate.

Base Plates
These are used for attaching additional equipment such as Vixen style dovetails, see below or, guide-scopes to any of our telescopes with CNC rings fitted.

Dovetail Plates
Can be fitted to Base Plates above to mate CNC tube rings to EQ5, EQ6, HEQ5, Vixen mounts.

If you have any doubts as to the correct selection please contact us on our sales address sales@orionoptics.co.uk and we will ensure you choose the correct plates.
