Product QuestionsQuestion by: ocabill357 on Feb 13, 2015 2:30:38 PMQuestion by: Curtis W. Mitchell on Mar 21, 2015 1:11:00 PMThe OS-DM has a tapped 1/4"-20 hole in the center for attachment to a camera tripod or dovetail and two countersunk holes (for conical flat-head screws) 35mm apart front-to-back (each 17.5mm ahead or behind the central 1/4"-20 tapped hole) that can accept 1/4" or 6mm screws passing down from the top to attach to an AstroTrac or some smaller Takahashi mounts.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Mar 27, 2015 12:03:00 PMWhat are the measurements of this dove tail plate. I am thinking of purchasing same to modify an old Orion Astroview mount head that did not have the dove tail plate, only a top head that you screw the OTA rings too.Question by: Jim Parris on Aug 25, 2016 7:20:00 AMThe OS-DM has a tapped 1/4"-20 hole in the center and 120 degrees apart at a radius of 1.08" (27.5mm). It also has larger M8/ 3/8"-16 pass through holes front to back with a 35mm spacing. The adapter is a round "puck" 80mm in diameter, and the main knob stocks off to one side by 35-40mm depending on the width of your dovetail plate.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Aug 31, 2016 11:10:00 AM
