We've just finished a production run on our tip-in style saddles for the G-11 and Astro-Physics 900/1200 mounts. The 12" saddle is not back in stock and we have plenty of 14" saddles as well.

If you are tired of juggling your OTA while threading the dovetail bar into the end of the G-11 saddle, our saddles are what you want. They also provide more support for long dovetail bars and minimize flexure. You spent a lot of money on a sturdy mount, so it would be a shame to have flexure in the dovetail bar undermine the stability.

Both the 12" and 14" saddles have extra mounting holes for mounting the saddle offset towards one end. This makes it easier to balance a tail-heavy SCT without adding weight to the front of the OTA.

The saddles are anodized aluminum. All threads (male and female) are stainless steel. Stainless steel guide pins are used to keep the clamps aligned. A stainless steel spring in each clamp keeps the jaws open while you tip the dovetail bar into place.

Your choice of blue or clear anodized aluminum knobs are available for the saddles.

12" Saddle $155.00 + shipping

14" Saddle $165.00 + shipping

Check out my web page for more info. Also check out our stainless steel counterweights.
