Delighted with the product, and service. The saddle is beautifully crafted, and fits & works flawlessly. Delivery was extremely fast, and a small hiccup in my order was handled extremely smoothly, and extremely quickly.
I had a couple of questions, and Tony gave me a quick response. Placed the order (4th time I’ve ordered from them), items were well packed and worked just like how he described. Great folks to deal with.
This is some of the best made, well thought out accessory equipment I have ever used. Besides the female V adapter I also purchased the ADM dovetail bar and now I can move my accessories between set-ups with ease. I can’t recommend ADM high enough!
Fits my EdgeHD 800 perfectly. Ended up flipping my SCT upside-down so I could use the original Vixen rail for my accessories. This dovetail is a huge improvement over my original rail! I will soon be replacing the Celestron vixen dovetail with the ADM one; they’re that much better. Thank you for the awesome products!
Got my order finally. Service and dispatch was awesome. Unfortunately Covid played havoc with international shipping times, but shipping tracking kept me informed. Thrilled with the careful packaging and the quality of the items when they arrived.
Always 1st rate. Love that they are made in USA as well. Anthony did a special order job for me on these and 2 other Losmandy plates, and they turned out fantastic, cannot say enough about ADM. You will not be disappointed.
As with all things Anthony fabricates, this saddle is a high quality upgrade for any EQ6-R mount and greatly improves upon the stock saddle. The green anodized knobs are a nice touch. It looks and works great!
I will be trying this out next weekend on my Celestron CGE mount. I know I know, I’m leaving a review before I even try using the item, but if it’s anything like the other ADM components I have and use every time I go out, this one will look and perform perfectly as well.… Read more “Review for CGX-SBS- Celestron CGX Side-By-Side Adapter”
Purchased these slow motion knobs to replace the manufacturer’s knobs on my Vixen Porta Mount ll. The original were made of plastic and had no screw to anchor them down on the rod. While they worked good, I never felt like they were substantial enough for the tripod/mount. These are solid metal and screw down… Read more “Review for Slow Motion Control Knobs”
I would ALWAYS choose ADM for ANY accessories that I need for Astrophotography!! Anthony is exceptional in his expertise and will take the time to make sure that you get what you need (he even FaceTimed me to make sure that I got what I needed)!!
The SDR-90-D set permitted the easy and clean installation of my 60mm guide scope/camera set-up. I like the multiple pattern of 3-holes which provides for a choice of ring spacing. Rings are totally stable with three hole usage over a single hole. Excellent craftsmanship from ADM.
Anthony, The VDUP4 dovetail fits my Lomo Astele telescope perfectly. I am amazed that you were able to channel the dovetail without having my dovetail on hand; just from pictures I sent to you. The holes were taped perfectly. I could not be happier with the outcome. Regards, Rick
Purchased several of these weights for my CGX. Beautiful craftsmanship. Perfectly finished. Flawless function. The size/weight allows far more options/adjustability for my system. And, as always, ADM was a pleasure to deal with. I have purchased many of Anthony’s products, and will be coming back for more.
I’m a big fan of ADM accessories – robust designs and excellent fit and finish. I use this Mini-MAX ALT/AZ device for aligning my Hydrogen-alpha ‘scope with a side-by -side 80mm refractor with a broadband filter for solar viewing. Every one of my telescopes has either an ADM V or D series primary mounting plate.… Read more “Review for Mini-MAX ALT/AZ Aiming Device. Female Saddle Version”
There’s a reason everyone uses ADM gear. Well, there’s a set of reasons, to start, there’s Anthony Davoli. His accessories solve problems because he’s an Astrophotographer, too. Then, there’s the fact that the things he makes are both functional, and beautiful. It’s delight to use the things he creates.
Are you kidding me! This upgrade to the recent purchase of the used AVX was just what I was looking for. Just Awesome! I added the Dual Saddle and Adapter as well. My only issue now is to get the AVX to respond like it looks. Might need to send it off for some proffesional… Read more “Review for AVX-OR – Celestron AVX Knob Upgrade Kit”
I recently purchased a Celestron CGEM mount and elected to add some much needed accessories vs. the stock knobs and mount parts…ADM is the only way to go, Finish wise, quality wise ADM is my first and only Choice!
VSAD-AVX- V Series Saddle. Fits Celestron AVX Mounts This piece should be originally installed on AVX mounts, its very well built, easy to install, and most importantly it does not bite dovetail but rather firmly holds it. I feel confident that my scope will not fall on the ground now. And no more scratches and… Read more “Review for VSAD-AVX- V Series Saddle. Fits Celestron AVX Mounts”
VC8-O- V Series Dovetail Bar for Celestron 8″ SCT Telescope. Orange Anodized Well machined and good anodize finish. hardware provided, a small card explaining where the 3 difference sizes of screws should go would have been appreciated, but I am new to Astronomy.

DR100- D Series Ring Set. 100mm Adjustable Rings Fine craftsmanship, well-made. Excellent customer service, reasonable shipping, fast turnaround and well-packaged. Always a pleasure ordering from Anthony.
DSAD-SP- D Series Saddle. Fits Vixen Super Polaris Mounts PERFECT fit on my Vixen Super Polaris! Fits directly to the mounting saddle of the mount and uses the standard bolts/knobs, no additional bolts or tools required.
Dual EQ6-RPro XL Dual Series Saddle The saddle that comes standard with the Skywatcher EQ6-R-Pro leaves a lot to be desired. The saddle is painted the same color as the mount and feels cheap, and even worse, gave me a sense that my expensive telescope and camera set-up might one day come loose and end-up… Read more “Review for Dual EQ6-RPro XL Dual Series Saddle”
VHAND- V Series Dovetail Handle. Used along with an ADM dovetail bar, it provides a safe and confident way to lift my Esprit 120 on and off the mount. Being able to take the handle on and off quickly without tools is a big plus. As with everything else I’ve purchased from ADM, quality is… Read more “Review for VHAND – V Series Dovetail Handle.”
VPA-AZGT- V Series Dovetail Adapter for SkyWatcher AZ-GTi Mount. Having purchased ADM products previously, I knew the quality and compatibility would be spot on. I was not disappointed, with this item meeting all expectations – well made and precision fitting and finish.
DUAL-EQ6-RPRO-XL- DUAL Series Saddle. Fits SkyWatcher EQ6/ Orion Atlas Mounts. Well made excellent fit. The only thing I would recommend is for it to have a deeper recess so the counter balance rod could be fully retracted and I would be the machined flat for the dec clutch lever on the opposite side of the… Read more “Review for DUAL-EQ6-RPRO-XL- DUAL Series Saddle.”
I have set up nearly 1/2 dozen different types of scopes with both Vixen and Losmandy style base plates. Every part I purchased from ADM exceeded my expectations. The dovetail adapters and radius block adapters are excellent and very well thought out. I frequently mount a V series dovetail on the top of the scope… Read more “Top Quality Accessories”
Great, well made products. Quick shipping. Easy transactions. Not difficult to install or figure how to install based upon descriptions and photos on your website. I am pleased with the items and my entire experience with ADM!
As a returning customer I am happy to state that ADM Accessories has performed flawlessly. I procured the D Series Dovetail Bar in order to complete the de-forking process on my Meade LX600 10″ SCE. The product arrived on time and functioned perfectly. I will always rely on ADM for their quality products and service.
ADM makes extremely high quality parts for telescopes. They are very communicative, so you can tell them your needs and they will work with you to figure it all out. They are worth their weight in gold.
I have purchased many ADM products in the past and I’ve been extremely pleased with them all. I replaced my Porta Mount ll slow-motion cables with these knobs and I haven’t looked back. The knobs look and work great. I highly recommend them. The craftsmanship is top notch!
This is a terrific product featuring the usual machining excellence ADM is known for. As far as I can tell, it’s the best option on the market for those of us who want to incorporate the lightweight advantages of an Arca Swiss-style dovetail/saddle combo, which is perfect for mounting cameras and small guide scopes. For… Read more “Review for AS-SAD- Arca Swiss Style Saddle”
Beautiful engineering,impeccable aluminum work. Function & Form what more could you ask for. Fits perfect to secondary accessory holes on sct no drilling no fuss mount and go. (Celestron 8in. SCT. AVX MOUNT)
I purchased the whole kit, the LZR-532KIT. The kit includes the adjustable rings so once mounted on your scope you can set it up the same as you would a finder scope. I have both still. You can then use the laser as a finder without having to get down on you knees when siting… Read more “Review for 532nm Green Laser Pointer and Accessories”
Very nice! I came to the site just looking for the curved radius blocks for a C8, but stayed to buy the whole bar and all. Everything fit perfectly and looks great. Will be getting another one for a C11 soon.
