Orion narrow dovetail plate (Vixen Style) is made of extruded, black anodized aluminum. With several holes and two long slots, this versatile plate is ideal for mounting telescope and guide scope tube rings, cameras, finder scopes, and other accessories.
Near the center of the plate are two counterbored through holes and two M6x1 threaded holes. Two long slots are also counterbored underneath so that the heads of standard socket head cap screws are recessed under the bottom surface of the plate.
Both the through holes and slots can accommodate 1/4″-20 socket head cap screws and some smaller sizes. The slots make it easy to accommodate the needed spacing between two tube rings for different telescope and guide scope configurations.
Two holes on each end of the plate have M6x1 threads also.
With the Orion narrow dovetail plate, you’ll have a secure connection and perfect placement ? no matter what tube you’re using to explore the universe!
