The Skywatcher HEQ5 mount has only a Vixen type fitting, but thanks to our Losmandy and Vixen dovetail clamp, the user will be able to use both of them.
Now you will no longer need to replace the plate of your optical tube, so your HEQ5 will be universal like the most expensive and higher payload mounts!
Our dovetail clamp, therefore suitable to medium loads, it's made from a full aluminum block T6061 and red anodized to resist weathering. The installation on the Skywatcher HEQ5 is done by replacing the original upper flange with a new flange ( supplied with the terminal ) that enables the installation of the Vixen Losmandy - large. The operation is very simple, just remove the original flange, acting on three small threaded dowels and entering our flange.
