Home Mounts & Tripods Mount Accessories Revelation Dovetail Mount Clamp (Vixen/Synta Profile)
The Revelation Dovetail Mount Clamp is a high quality solidly built unit which takes all telescopes and equipment which come with standard Vixen/Synta dovetail bars. This mount clamp comes with a large, easily operated, knurled main clamping bolt and smaller safety bolt, designed to prevent accidental slippage, when adjusting the balance or seating of a bar.This versatile mount clamp comes with four 1/4" Whitworth (UNC) profile tapped boltholes, which allows the mount to be easily bolted to larger dovetails. This standard photo type thread allows the clamp to be secured to a photo tripod, this means smaller astronomical telescopes can be used on a photo tripod for portability. This clamp allows the user the abiltiy to use two (or more) of the Revelation Dovetail Clamps as seating for telescopes and other equipment in parallel to each other by attaching this to a longer dovetail bar (enables side by side mounting). This is particularly useful for mounting telescopes and autoguiders for imaging purposes.There are an additional two 6.5mm non-threaded countersunk bolt holes (9mm countersink width/10mm countersunk depth), which would allow the use of M8 bolts to attach to other dovetails or mount heads. These two fixing holes are at the standard 35mm centres separation found on many astronomical telescope mounts.
