Risers are used to attain balance when imaging with some smaller telescope systems. This is particularly important when mounting cameras to our SVX80T. They may also be needed when using our 102 mm refractors. With these lighter telescopes, the relatively heavy camera adds more weight to the rear, creating an imbalance. To solve this issue, Stellarvue created risers. These Stellarvue risers move the telescope 2.5" above the rail to provide plenty of extra needed clearance for the camera. Then, using a longer rail that extends underneath the camera, the telescope and camera may be moved forward, balancing the entire system on the mount.
This set includes two riser blocks (RSX-SET), a TP-013A Losmandy sized rail (13" long), and four 1/4-20 screws. (Note: If your system requires a Vixen rail instead of this Losmandy rail, use the RSX-V instead.)
SELECT THE CORRECT THREAD! Two styles of this configuration are offered. If your rings have the standard American 1/4-20 threaded holes select that option above. If you have import rings that use metric 6 mm threaded holes, select the metric option above.

My SVX102D with pegasus focuser was hitting the USB cables and power cables on my Ioptron Gem 45 mount. Thanks to these risers I can now rotate the camera and balance the telescope w/o hitting any cables on the mount. Super high quality product. Great finish and fit. With Stellarvue it's not only about the great optical quality of their telescopes. It is also great to have a company that supports their telescopes with high quality accessories.
Superbly made product. Perfect for my Espirit 80 telescope. Unfortunately the dimensions of my telescope rings do not match the wide slots of the Losmandy plate. However the center holes allow a secure attachment to them with 2 bolts. System came with 4 bolts, a very nice extra. Only disappointment was the long wait time for the product. However an accurate wait period was provided at the time of my purchase.
It is a work of art, plus the Losmandy rail has a place for what ever you want to put on it. beautiful
