I want to attach my D-SLR to an equatorial telescope mount (Vixen saddle). Hoping to just screw it onto the camera, pop it into the telescope mount, and go. Will this do that? If not, what will?
Asked by: David
Yes, that will do exactly what you want, but you will need a 1/4 20 stud to screw into it : https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1421963-REG/smallrig_1879_1_4_to_1_4_thread.html/accessories Thanks for choosing B&H Lenny E

Can it be attached to a Televue TV-85 so that the telescope can be put on a equatorial mount that has a V dovetail clamp?
Asked by: Hansong
The short answer is yes. Funny you should ask, I just ordered a TV-85 myself and have been shopping for the appropriate Vixen-style dovetail plate. A friend has a TV-60 and the Televue Panoramic mount. He confirmed with Televue before he bought it and by his own measurements afterwards that the spacing on the bottom of the 3" & 4" mounting rings and the TV-60 mounting column is 40mm or about 1 9/16 inches. Checking the slot dimensions for the VUP4 on the Losmandy site, the smallest spacing the VUP4 will accept is 1 inch center to center. So, yes, the VUP4 should work on the 3" mount ring from Televue for the TV-85.
