The Observatory Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS is part of our system PLUS (Prima Luce Universal System) which includes a large variety of support rings, plates, guide rings and dovetail clamps to offer you the maximum freedom to build your mechanical system of support, depending on the application that you want to achieve. Indeed, all the PLUS elements have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting elements, always with maximum rigidity and comfort. The Observatory Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS is designed to support heavy loads.
For this application, we designed many elements, including the Observatory Dovetail Clamp Vixen+Losmandy PLUS. Each component of the PLUS system is made of aluminum blocks that are high precision CNC machined. The aluminum is then sandblasted to achieve a very smooth surface finish and is anodized (hard anodizing) to increase the hardness of the material and protect it from oxidation.
If you have other brands mechanical accessories, you can still use all the elements of the PLUS system. Indeed we have provided a series of central slots that allow, for example, to fix on these dovetail clamps on plates or rings through a screw.
