Very sturdy

I am using this plate as a transition piece with RRS camera bars. RRS camera bar seems working but did not provide full confidence. This Losmandy plate works perfectly.

Metric socket caps don't fit

Workmanship is great, lots of pre drilled screw holes. However, the holes are too small for metric socket head machine screws so, for example, in order to mount it on the included tube rings on my GSO newtonian I had to use flat head machine screws. Alternatively I could have bought new tube rings that accept SAE screws for a couple hundred more dollars. By comparison ADM dovetails do accept metric socket heads. A second complaint that also applies to ADM is that the pre-drilled holes should be wide enough to accommodate small washers. This would be helpful when the depth of a screw hole on a piece of equipment, such as a camera, doesn't neatly match with standard screw sizes. If you have all SAE standard hardware this will be a great dovetail plate.

Would be nice to have documentation on hole placement

This is a high quality item with very good fit and finish. It would be nice if there was a hole placement drawing as there is for the 14 model (Although 14 drawing is missing some critical dimensions in the center) Unfortunately can not use for it's intended purpose.

Top Quality Plate

By Michael

This is a typical high quality plate from Losmandy. The only reason I marked it off of 5 stars is that the hole pattern (which I though was universal on these DUP plates from Losmandy) is not. So I was trying to line up hole spacings so that I could use this DUP19 plate on the bottom of my telescope rings and a Losmandy DUP14 plate on the top, but could not make the holes line up with the plates centered. If one matches plates of same length for this though you would have no issues, and the many different hole sizes and spacings make for a flexible plate for mounting lots of different gear.

good quality product

it's more or less what I expected. Would be nice if there was a hole chart to check with before purchasing

Great addition!

This is a nice plate. The drilling makes it potentially quite versatile, also. B+H had it to me in just a couple days.

Asked by: Gilles
I use this to mount telescopes to my equatorial mount. In some cases, one might want to raise the telescope above the surface. I do not need them in my applications, as my mounting rings give me enough clearance. ADM does sell radius block for use with SCTs
