Riser blocks are used when mounting telescopes to rails when more room is needed between the rail and the telescope. This is particularly important with our smaller telescopes (SV70T, SV80ST) when a camera is mounted to the rear and it cannot be balanced on the mount. Using Stellarvue Riser Blocks, a longer rail may be used that extends to the rear and allows adjustable travel to attain balancing over the focuser. The rail does not hit the focuser since the riser block lifts the telescope 2.5" above the rail.
NOTE: This set is for use with import telescope that have rings with metric threaded holes (M6X1). This set is not for telescopes with rings that have the standard American 1/4-20 threaded holes. This set includes a Vixen rail that is 10.5" long, two riser blocks and two long 6 mm METRIC screws for attaching the rail to your rings through the riser blocks. (Note: If your system needs a Losmandy-sized rail, use the RSS-L instead).
