Heavy duty dovetail saddles for Astro-Physics 900 & 1200 mounts that accept Losmandy dovetail bars. Designed to provide more support for Losmandy dovetail bars and reduce flexure problems. Three sizes are available:

10" - for 13.5" (DAP4, DAP5, DC8, DM8) and longer bars. $125.00

12" - for 17.25" (DAP6, DAP7, DC11, DM7, DM10) and longer bars. $137.50

14" - 18.925"-23.75" (DC9.25, DM12, DC14, DM16) bars. $150.00

These recommendations allow for some DEC balance adjustment. If you are using rings and can balance by sliding the OTA in the rings, you can use the 14" saddle on the 17.25" bar, etc.

The saddles are made of anodized aluminum. 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.

Countersunk mounting holes are provided for Astro-Physics 900 & 1200 mounts as well as Mountain Instruments MI-250 GOTO mounts. You can drill holes for other mounts if necessary.

Thanks for looking,
Robin Casady
