Standard Losmandy-style D plate. This plate is 13" long. For mounting Stellarvue rings with two screws the ring spacing will be 8 1/4" - 9". Mounting with the center screw only the spacing is quite variable from 2 1/2" - 10 1/2". The plate includes multiple countersunk and threaded holes with 1/4-20 and 6 mm threads. Dual safety screws on either end may be used. Each plate comes with two safety screws and four 1/4"-20 and four 6 mm socket cap head screws for ring mounting. Make sure you select the proper thread screws to avoid ring damage.

The mounting plate I received is a little different than the one shown in the picture. Mine has more hole options and some of the longer slotted holes have unfinished aluminum on the inside rather than the anodized black. The one I received is actually a big improvement over the one shown. It is a well conceived and engineered mounting plate. I am using it with the riser blocks. Highly recommended.
I purchased this to replace the Vixen style plate included with my SVX125D refractor. Then moved the Vixen plate to the top (to act as a handle). Perfect pairing. The scope sits very securely on my Losmandy mount and having a handle makes mounting and maneuvering all the more easier.
I own 3 Stellarvue Apo refractors and all are outstanding in fit, finish, quality control, and workmanship. This dove plate is of similar quality.
My SVR102T feels much more solid and stable then when i used the TP010 vixen style plate. You get to use four mounting screws with this plate rather then using two with the suggested TP006
Superior quality! Everything I have ordered from Stellarvue - scopes, risers, spacers have been awesome!
Customer service helped me find best dovetail solution for my new mount. Shipped immediately and fit perfectly!
