Description

The contents of this kit can be used to attach various optical instruments and other equipment with a 1/4" photographic thread to predrilled dovetail platforms subject to the thickness of the platform used. Such equipment includes the Coronado Solar scopes, most Meade 90-125mm SCTs and Skywatcher Maksutovs as well the majority of DSLR cameras.

All components in the kit are made of stainless steel (S/S).

Washers can also be used to ‘shorten’ the length of the thread without the need to cut the threaded part of the screw.
