These 5.5" outside diameter split tube rings, specifically designed for the D&G 5" and 5.1" ED Refractor, are made of die-cast aluminum, finished in gloss black paint, and lined with felt. The hinges, no-tool knobs, and hardware are made of stainless steel for long life and easy telescope installation and removal.
Parallax Instruments Standard Telescope Moutning Rings for 6" OD Tubes
The rings are installed onto your mount or mount dovetail plate via a 1/4"-20 thread mounting hole that is drilled and tapped in the flat boss on the bottom of each ring. A similar hole is drilled and tapped on the top boss so that accessories, such as a piggyback camera mount, can be attached.
When you get to your shopping cart, please write what you are going to mount the rings to in the comments section. Most standard rings are in stock, however, certain mounting set-ups may require some custom drilling and thus shipping may take a little longer. Please call us at 1 (800) 483-6287 or email us with any questions. Thanks!

Product QuestionsWhat is the weight of these rings? Curious to know if these are significantly lighter than the standard Takahashi rings (which tend to be on the heavy side).Question by: C E Steuart Dewar on Nov 27, 2015 12:45:00 PMThe manufacturer does not list explicit weights for the rings, but as I have had scopes with both Takahashi clamshells and later Parallax rings, I can tell you that there is not much difference in weight. The rings are easier to mount a piggyback rail onto, though.Answer by: Chris Hendren (Admin) on Dec 1, 2015 6:45:00 PM
