Product QuestionsI need to mount a Celestron Super C-8 tube assembly to a Celestron Advanced VX mount. Is this the correct dovetail bar to do the job?Question by: Max Shelhorse on Dec 3, 2015 3:25:00 PMUnfortunately, the ADM Mini dovetail bar is too narrow to fit the AVX mount saddle (it's really geared as a lightweight counterweight/piggyback camera system). You would instead want the ADM VC8 dovetail, which you can get in black or Celestron orange. Part numbers AA-VC8 and AA-VC8-O.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Dec 3, 2015 3:26:00 PMIs the ADM mini dovetail compatible with the ARCA dovetail standard used by photo tripod manufacturers? They are both 1.5" wide, but is the angle the same?Question by: Steven on Apr 9, 2016 5:57:00 PMUnfortunately, they are not compatible. While wanting to be certain before answering your question, we measured one of the ADM mini-dovetail plates to be sure. The actual width of the plate is 1.375", and will be a little too small to be properly held by an ARCA 'saddle'.Answer by: Eric Blackhurst (Admin) on Apr 11, 2016 4:42:00 PM
