Astro-Physics Takahashi Quick Release Base Adapte
This adapter from Astro-Physics has been designed to permit the use of Astro Physics Guiders and Brackets with Takahashi and other brands of telescopes that require flat surface attachment, as well as with custom applications. This adapter was designed so that you could attach it easily to almost any brand of universal dovetail or flat surface with ease, allowing your Guider and Finder Brackets to be quickly removed / installed when transporting.
When considering whether or not to make use of this adapter, please reference THIS hole pattern diagram.
Although the QRBATAK-A can also be mounted to dovetail plates, we don’t recommend this option for critical guiding. Instead, we recommend attaching the QRBATAK-A directly to the imaging scope rather than an accessory plate, whenever possible. As a final note of importance, The QRBATAK-A will also allow you to use any Astro-Physics finder bracket (past or present) that utilizes the QRBASE, QRBASES QRBASES-A, orQRBASES adapters.
