TUBE AND RING MOUNTED D SERIES DOVETAIL PLATES & ACCESSORIES
 
D Series Dovetail Plates and Accessories The Dovetail Plates are the heart of the Losmandy Secondary System. 0.5" x 4.0" x length of the tube assembly. Dovetail Bars may be mounted to the top and bottom of tube assembly for mounting of all D series accessories, making it possible to use both sides of tube for equipment. Mounts to all Astrophysics, Celestron, and Meade systems. The dovetail plates, like all accessories in the Losmandy line, are machined for lightness and rigidity from aluminum stock, then black anodized for a tough, corrosion free surface.
