The 8-inch Dovetail bar (CGE) from Celestron is for mounting a telescope optical tube to a mount or to attach accessories to the top of the optical tube. Having an extra dovetail bar means that a telescope can have its tube rings attached to its own dovetail bar. To use a different telescope for the same mount, all that would then have to be done would be to slide the bar into the mounts clamp and tighten it.

8-inch Dovetail bar (CGE) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For an EdgeHD 8! This is exactly what I needed for my EdgeHD 8! I bought the EdgeHD 8 package that comes with the Advanced VX mount. What I needed this dovetail for is for the top of the telescope so I could attach an AutoGuider (ShortTube 80 from Orion). And it works just as it should.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit for the purpose Got it when bought the CGEM, so my CPC 800 OTA could be de-forked. No more fork mounts for me. This product fits perfectly what was designed for, althoug it does come with the rear and forward screws to be fitted to existing holes in order to avoid the OTA to slip out of the mount head. Otherwise, great purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 8-inch Dovetail bar (CGE) by Celestron Used to mount my 80mm finder scope. Fits celestron CPC 800 HD pefectly and comes with screws needed to mount it. A little heavy but very solid. Much cheaper than the other options out there which were all around $80-110.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Fits! Bought this dovetail from my old Nexstar 8. The part lined up perfectly with the existing mounting holes on the scope.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this again if needed. The dovetail bar is a perfect fit for my Celestron Celestar 8 inch telescope. I like the way it is very wide giving the tube a lot more support than the dovetail bar that came with my mount. The price was great, shipping was fast. Best of all is how well this dovetail bar holds my scope, and how well it clamps in the mount I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job Fit & finish is perfect. It does what it's supposed to do. I milled slots in mine at 45 degree angle alternating larger & smaller endmills. Lightened it up a bit & it looks cool.
