This kit, composed of a Losmandy PLUS style dovetail plate and PLUS curved blocks, can be installed either below (for connecting a Losmandy type dovetail bar under the telescope) and above (for supporting a parallel telescope) to various telescopes.
The curved blocks can be easily installed on telescopes. Simply remove the screws already on the telescope and fix the curved blocks (one in front, one in rear of the optical tube) and secure with the same screws. On the curved blocks you can then connect the PLUS Losmandy dovetail bar using 2 M6 screws for each curved block (included in the box).
