Like all the other elements of the PLUS series, these Curved Blocks for SCT's are made with high mechanical precision (built with CNC machines from aluminum block) and specially designed to enable you to easily install other mechanical elements such as support rings, plates or dovetail clamps.
If you have a Celestron C8, C9.25, C11, EdgeHD 800, 925, 1100 or Meade SC and ACF 8" telescope and want to connect a Losmandy type bar under the telescope to connect it on a mount or set the same bar over to the telescope to support a parallel telescope, the best method is to fix these curved blocks that then allow you to connect the 350mm or 495mm Losmandy PLUS dovetail bar on the telescope.
The PLUS curved blocks can be easily installed on Celestron C8, C9.25, C11, EdgeHD 800, 925, 1100 or Meade SC and ACF 8" 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 350mm or 495mm PLUS Losmandy dovetail bar using 2 M6 screws for each curved block (included in the box).
The PLUS Curved Blocks for SCT's are part of the PLUS (Prima Luce Universal System) which includes many guide rings, support rings, plates, adapters, and dovetail clamps to offer you the maximum freedom to build your mechanical system of support, depending on the application that you want to achieve. Indeed, all the PLUS elements have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting elements, always with maximum rigidity and comfort. Prima Luce designed many element for this purpose, including the PLUS Curved Blocks for SCT's.
Each component of the PLUS system is made of aluminum blocks that are high precision CNC machined. The aluminum is then sandblasted to achieve a very smooth surface finish and is anodized (hard anodizing) to increase the hardness of the material and protect it from oxidation.
