Two or three telescopes on the mount at the same time
Enjoy different views of the objects with more telescopes in parallel on the mount head. Place your large main telescope on the top saddle and a smaller telescope on the side of the mount head.
Installation of the saddle
This Losmandy-size dovetail saddle is easily installed on the counterweight arm with two screws. The magnetic holder for the handpad must be removed first. Adjustment of the telescope pointing must be done on the telescope tube rings.
NOTE: Not all versions of the Panther mount have the necessary tapped holes for mounting the saddle. Check your mount before ordering – contact us for details.
The capacity of the Vixen dovetail saddle
The saddle will carry telescopes up to 10kg in parallel with a telescope mounted on the normal top dovetail saddle. It is possible to install telescopes on both arms at the same time. Be aware of the total capacity of the mount head.
