Note: We do not supply these with attachment screws. Many SCT mirror cells use threaded holes that are open and if too long a screw is used it can strike and damage the mirror. So use the appropriate length screw that will not extend into the mirror cell deeper than the screws you remove from these threaded holes.
Mounting to a Takahashi Refractor: Select the R050 TAK above.

Excellent quality, better than expected.
Very well made!
Would have given it 5 stars except for the base. The slots for the mounting screws were not quite wide enough for the holes on the telescope (Celestron 9 1/4 edgeHD) and the recessed channel too narrow for the screw heads on telescope. However, a small round and flat file took care of it. Other than that it's a very nice product with real steel nylon tipped screws for the finder scope.
David: Are you saying that the channel is too narrow? Were you using button head screws? We are always seeking input like this so we can make sure what we make is hassle free so I would appreciate your input. Thank you. Vic Maris
I used these rings to mount the Stellarvue 10X60 RACI finderscope and it was an simple procedure. I like the dual rail locking knobs as well as the rail bolt that prevents the scope mount from sliding out the bottom of the dovetail. Finally the plastic tipped adjustment knobs are simple to adjust and don't mark up the scope body. Nice piece of kit.
Fits my F050G guide scope perfectly. Well crafted and solid. I moved the rings onto a longer vixen bar to mount on top of the clamshell rings of my imaging scope.
The screw tips are nylon to protect the finder. Very nice!
The base that mounts to the scope has two slots along the centerline. When I tightened down on the screws to hold it down, the base bent along the centerline.
I was able to straighten it out. Then I used the two additional screw slots arranged perpendicular to the centerline, and put the screws near the ribs along the outer edge. That fixed it and it works fine. Nevertheless, Stellarvue should reinforce the lengthwise slots to prevent this from happening.
I found these to be more veratile and sturdy than most, well made and fast delivery.
with which to mount the finderscope on the SV clamshell. These are easily attainable from your local hardware store, however.
These look and feel very nice. They easily attach to my Orion dob reflector and do an admirable job of helping me adjust my Stellarvue finderscope so that it is properly aligned.
