Farpoint Vixen Dovetail Plate with Armored Strip for 8" Meade SCTs
Key Features
  • Stainless Steel Strip Prevents Marring
  • Black Anodized Aluminum
Made of anodized aluminum, this Farpoint Vixen Dovetail Plate gets an upgrade with the addition of stainless steel strips on the clamping surface, which prevents dimpling and pitting from saddles that use set screws to secure it in place. Set screws often dig into the plate and permanently mark and mar the surface, which over time leads to sloppiness in the mounting system as the set screw wanders into the various old grooves that have been cut into the dovetail. Designed to fit 8" Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (SCTs), and a set of mounting screws is provided to attach the plate to the telescope.
