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-012 Vixen style rail (10 1/2" long), and two long, stainless screws. (Note: If your system requires a Losmandy Style (D) rail, use the RSX-L 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.

This equipment is just as advertised. Just what I expected. I did have to cut the bolts about 3 mm to keep them from protruding inside the rings on my AT80EDT. That wasn’t a big problem. Works great.
