Mount your tube on an LXD55, GP, Takahashi or other GEM.

This nifty black-anodized system came from a new OTA, bolts to existing cw screw holes, 16.5" apart. Consists of a beefy rail that bolts to the underside of the front and rear cells, and a large proprietary dovetail that is contained inside another box/plate system that bolts to a GEM with paired holes spaced 35, 95 and 145 mm apart. The dovetail has fore and aft movement for balancing the tube, clamping controlled by two large tightening knobs.

I don't have a picture and can't find one on the internet of the mak OTA alone, if anyone has one I would be greatful. I will include the original necessary correct-length screws to plug and play. For $20 more I will include a Synta/Celestron/LXD55 dovetail plate (the assembly above has 1 new hole drilled to accommodate this). The 23lb scope will balance on GP/LXD55 type mounts with two 11lb weights.

$100, shipped CONUS, paypal encouraged. Please forgive any slow emails, limited access to a computer for a few days.
