TS Optics Premium Dovetail Clamp for Heavy Telescopes
With the quick coupling from Teleskop-Service you can fix your telescope securely. This clamp is also ideal for building double fixtures where high load capacity is required. Flat clamping and two clamping screws achieve high clamping force and protect your accessories. There are no unsightly pressure points.
A secure and precise clamp for your telescope
Whether you want to attach a telescope from Vixen, Skywatcher, Orion, Teleskop Service... simply attach a GP rail to the telescope (see recommended accessories). This GP rail is even included with most spotting scopes. The rail is simply clamped and fixed with the set screws of the TS dovetail clamp. You can also move the telescope on the clamp for better balance.
The full length of the dovetail clamp also prevents vibration. The wall thickness of the dovetail clamp is designed for the highest loads. At the thinnest point the clamp is 18mm! thick.
You can adapt the dovetail clamp itself to a support, a counterweight bar or another dovetail bar and thus build a double support, for example.
Despite the tight clamping, unsightly nicks are avoided
Two generously sized surfaces press the dovetail bar towards the other end of the clamp. The pressure is not concentrated in one point, but in a larger area with a width of 62mm. This has a positive effect on the load capacity. In addition, unsightly pressure points are reliably avoided.
Extremely flexible thanks to 9 countersunk holes
There are 9 M6 and 1/4" screw holes available to fix the dovetail clamp: seven round holes and two elongated holes. The functions, especially the clamp, are fully preserved. The clamp screw can be operated without no problem.
