Tired a trying to juggle a heavy OTA while you slide it in the G-11 saddle? I think you'll like these "tip-in" style dovetail saddles. They fit the G-11 and Astro-Physics 900/1200 mounts. Designed to provide more support for Losmandy dovetail bars and reduce flexure problems. Two sizes are available:

12" - $155.00

14" - $165.00

The saddles are made of anodized aluminum & stainless steel. The clamps run on stainless steel alignment pins. All threads are stainless steel; stainless steel helicoil threads are inserted into the aluminum to provide strength and durability. A spring holds each clamp open to make it easy to tip in the dovetail bar.

Two sets of countersunk mounting holes are provided for the G-11, Astro-Physics 900, and 1200 mounts. The second set is for offset mounting to help balance tail-heavy SCTs while still providing support to the dovetail bar.

These saddles can be used with a GM-8 by adding washers to reduce the G-11 5/16" holes to 1/4". You can drill holes for other mounts if necessary.

For more information and ordering, see my web page.

Thanks for looking,
Robin Casady
