This adapter will enable you to use our dovetail plates with your EM-10, EM-200, Teegul and other Takahashi mounts; Giro2DX or any mount that has, or can be adapted to have, a 2-hole M8 mounting pattern on the top of the declination axis. The two holes are spaced 1.378" or 35 mm apart. The four outer holes are tapped 1/4 - 20 to accept the Astro-Physics plates.

Bolt the Q4044 adapter to the mount (screws provided), then attach our DOVEDV10, DOVELM162 or previous mounting plates: DOVE08 (as shown), DOVE15, DOVELM16, DOVELM2 and DOVELM. You will also need the corresponding dovetail sliding bar/plate. The FP1500 can also be used with this adapter.

Note: Although shown as an unanodized part in one of the photos, this adapter is black anodized.
