Side by side Vixen plate 350mm PLUS
The side-by-side plates allow you to install two telescopes in parallel on the same mount and they are thus useful for both photographic and visual applications. Using these side-by-side plates it's also possible, for example, to install a camera (like a DSLR) in parallel to the main telescope to take a picture of the sky through their own lens.
This plate can be connected to all mounts with an Vixen plate and the two terminals (they offer the attack for Vixen and Losmandy plates) are spaced 310mm.
Thanks to its particular design, the side by side Vixen plate 350mm PLUS can be used:
- in photographic applications where it is necessary to install two telescopes on the same mount: for example, you can install a primary imaging telescope and one for guiding; or a camera (like a DSLR) that takes the pictures through its lens and a guide telescope.
- for visual applications where it is useful for the specific use, to install two telescopes in parallel.
The side by side Vixen plate 350mm 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.
For this application, we designed many elements, including the side by side Vixen plate 350mm 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 support rings plate or guide rings through a screw.
