Great to know that it can be fittted on a tripod.Can a camera plate like Manfrotto with 3/8 sliding screw be fitted on the center of the plate with the anti rotation lug in one of the holes.? That way the balancing plate can be mounted of a photo video mount for complete movement with two scopes mounted

Baader double-balancing plate-set with 3" plate, V-clamp and Stronghold

The Baader double-balancing plare-set is used to operate two telescopes with Vixen-style dovetails on one mount. It offers numerous connection options.

The Stronghold Tangential Assembly (payload: ca. 7 kg for photography) is used to align the second telescope perfectly parallel to the first one – simpler twin-mounts can't compensate diffences caused by the collimation or the tube clamps!

The set is made of the following parts:

The plate has got a length of 300 mm and a width of 100 mm. When you use the 3" Losmandy-style dovetail to put it on the mount, you can use it to balance the telescopes by moving it sideways.

The plate can also be mounted permanently onto the Dec.-head of many mounts which use the standard 3.2" hole pattern (e.g. 10Micron GM2000 and many AstroPhysics-mounts). It is also compatible with the Astro Physics twin-mounts #1401128 (13") and #1401129 (16") to install guidescope rings along a clamp plate, to perfectly balance two telescopes. In the center of the plate is also a large 3/8" photo thread.

The plate has also got bore holes for other clamps and scope rings. You can replace the Vixen-clamp or the Stronghold e.g. with Baader Pan 3 "/ EQ Dual clamp 230mm (for Losmandy and Vixen-standard) (#2451566 , € 260,-) or Baader PAN-EQ-Clamp V190 (EQ Standard) (#2451525 , € 219,-) . Alternatively, the clamp can also be used with Baader Guidescope rings BP I - 60-120mm (#1500201 , € 143,-) oder Baader Guidescope rings BP II - 110-160mm (#1500202 , € 186,-)
