Altair Astro

This small light strong dual mounting bar is compatible with most telescopes having the Vixen/Synta format dovetail system, allowing you to mount two telescopes side-by-side with a 160mm or 230mm centre-to-centre separation between the optical tubes.

Recommended for imaging with small portable refractors and or a guide scope, or dual white-light and Ha Solar observing. This product is ideal when ordered with guide scope rings, and an autoguiding package. Recommended for portable imaging with the Astrotrac mount.

To check your telescopes will sit next to each other with enough clearance, place them side-by-side on a flat surface with a centre-to-centre separation of 160mm or less/230mm or less. If the optical tubes don't touch, then they will fit this product.

The system comprises of 2x "SVDC" Vixen-format clamps, mounted side-by-side on a single 180mm Vixen-format dovetail bar with 4x included stainless steel M6 screws to attach a clamp to each end of the bar. 

All TMS components are modular, and compatible with the rest of the Altair TMS Telescope Mounting System range - for example you can mount Altair TMS Ultra Light Guidescope Rings on both the underside of these Vixen-format dovetail clamps, or directly to the Vixen-format bar itself using the same stainless M6 screws.

This clamp and bar assembly is hard-anodised in Black for good resistance to tarnishing or scratching. Black goes with any colour, including Altair TMS clear silver or blue anodised mounting equipment.
