    I use the VPA dovetail adapter as a stop block on (the objective end of) each ADM dovetail bar on each scope. Once the position of the scope relative to the saddle is determined to achieve balance, the stop block is installed to the dovetail bar (contacting the saddle) with a socket head capscrew replacing the finger knob style fastener ADM supplies. The socket head screw allows tightening securely via an Allen wrench. Once the stop block is installed to the rail the scope returns to balance when mounting by locking the stop bloc against the saddle and tightening the saddle knobs. (all my mounts have the same length ADM saddles). The stop block also helps support a heavy OTA when mounting as I orient the OTA vertically and the stop block carries the weight of the OTA while I tighten the saddle knobs. Perhaps not exactly the use Anthony intended – but these work very well to help prevent accidents when mounting OTAs and as I said – return the scope to the pre-set balance point.

    I used these dovetail adapters to attach my guide scope (rings) to a vixen-style bar on top of my telescope. I was able to do this in minutes and the guide scope is now held firmly in place.

    The perfect base for mounting a light duty finder that can be swapped between telescopes equipped with a v-plate affixed to the top of the OTA’s split rings.

    All their products rock! I have several of their dovetail plates, plate clamps and guild scope rings. All of which are well machined and finished, simple the best out there. I highly recommend AMD’s products and their fantastic service!
