This Cradle Assembly from Explore Scientific is a replacement for the cradle assembly included with the Comet Hunter telescope OTA but can also be used with other telescopes that would snugly fit its 6.9" inside diameter. It features aluminum construction, is 7.75" long, and the hinged rings have over-sized thumbscrews for easy handling. The top handle makes it easy to handle your OTA while setting and packing-up and a slot that allows the attachment of accessories through the use of 1/4"-20 bolts. The bottom has a Vixen-style dovetail plate for mounting on compatible saddles.

    Cradle Assembly for Carbon Fiber Comet Hunter Telescope is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great For Celestron C6 SCT Great product, fit and finish are good. Bought for Celestron C6 SCT. Fits it like a glove. Handle-piggyback mount/rail is outstanding. Makes it easy to mount too. All metal construction and all attachments clear the tube rings. Nice and thick felt on rings. Even has a steel plate attached to the dovetail bar so when you mount it theres no marking up the aluminum dovetail bar. For anyone piggybacking a camera (or ?) the piggyback mounting rail is a real winner, especially when compaired to the one Celestron makes for this scope. Simple hex-head 1/4 20 bolt fit right in from below and locks bolt head into place, no twisting no tools needed to add anyting ti the mount.
