This double “H” plate is designed to allow side-by-side (parallel) mounting of two optical tube assemblies that have the standard Losmandy 3″ wide dovetail bars to be used on the 10Micron mounts. The mounting system comprises:
- 4″-wide Maxi dovetail clamp (see below for versions)
- 4”-wide 400mm long dovetail bar (#1452140) for strength and stability
- Two 3″ Losmandy 200mm long dovetail clamps (2 x #1452085) for attaching OTA’s
There are two versions of the MaxiDual dual side-by-side kit:
- MaxiDual standard with 200mm length Maxi dovetail clamp
- MaxiDual XL with longer 350mm length Maxi dovetail clamp for longer and/or heavier payloads
All the components are CNC machined and black anodised aluminum.
Multiple holes on the dovetail bar allow 3 different separations between the two dovetail clamps of approximately 210mm (8.3″), 245mm (9.6″) and 281mm (11”).
Please note that the 4″ Maxi dovetail clamp (both versions) will fit directly on the GM2000, but requires the following flange adaptors for the GM3000/4000 mounts
- #1453545 for GM3000
- #1454545 for GM4000
