Product QuestionsWhat is the distance between the holes along the bar? Is there a diagram that shows the measurements?Question by: EastexAstro on Jan 1, 2015 10:16:56 AMThe inner mounting holes are ~4" apart and the outer mounting holes are ~14" apart on-center. The recessed holes for attaching the bar to the rings are ~7.5" and ~11.5" apart on-center. Other combinations of holes could be used to change these spacings if you want.
Orion does not have a diagram that I could locate online.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Jan 5, 2015 12:52:24 PMIs this just a rectangular bar or is it trapezoidal in cross section like a dovetail? Will it fit your guidescope rings with dovetail clamps?Question by: John M. on Aug 1, 2015 5:06:00 PM
