Altair VDC-Synta Dovetail Clamp

**Please Note the price on this item includes carriage**

This is a small, light yet very strong clamp which is compatible with Vixen - Synta format dovetail bars. The "VDC" is also modular, and compatible with the rest of the blue anodised Altair TMS Telescope Mounting System range - for example it can be bolted directly to the Altair Losmandy plates to mount two telescopes side-by-side.

**Please Note Our Prices Include Carriage**

Compatibility:

•Can be bolted directly to Altair 250mm or 350mm Losmandy dovetail plates for mounting dual telescopes side-by-side, so you don't need to buy another purpose built side-by-side bar.
•Fits Far East format narrow style dovetail bars sold by companies such as Vixen, Synta Skywatcher and Orion USA.
•Fits iOptron Minitower mounts with the appropriate TMS Adapter Puck.
Product design:

•Doesn't mar or damage the dovetail bar, because it uses a flat clamping surface, unlike other products which rely on screws to grip the bar, which invariably dig into the metal when tightened.
•Safe and easy "tip in" saddle lets you position your telescope quickly and easily, while tightening up the clamps with your other hand. Based on feedback from customers.

•Chamfered edges to make it even easier to get a heavy OTA placed securely before tightening the clamps.
•No sharp edges or poor machining.
•The clamp has it's own "self registering" machined guides, unlike inferior makes, where the thread alone takes most of the strain.
•Self registering spring loaded clamp, over-engineered to grip with maximum strength and rigidity.
•Stainless Steel thread (unlike cheap chromed, or zinc plated threads which corrode after a few months as the coating flakes away).
•Heavy duty hard anodised star knobs, custom-machined for a positive grip (we tested several iterations). The knobs have a nylon washer to stop binding, making them easier to undo if over-tightened.
•Precision CNC machined locally and blue hard anodised to match the Altair TMS hardware range.
•The right level of quality at the right price - try adding up everything you need and bearing versaility in mind when comparing to other makes.
