The AAC-0002 X-Y Adjustable Mount System for quick installation of Tele Vue 60 to Schmidt-Cassegrain scopes 8" or larger for use as a "superfinder”, or to attach to a Tele Vue Ring Mount. The AAC-0002 consists of 3-sections (AAM-0001, MBC-1001 & SAB-1001) that can be used in multiple applications
The large knob acts as a pivot for the 2 horizontal adjustment screws, while simultaneously acting as the lock knob for the vertical "jack screw" adjustment. Removing the "stop screws" on the end of the TV-60 dovetail permits easy removal and installation onto the similar AAM-0001 dovetail. Remember to reinstall the "stop screw" for safety after the Tele Vue 60 is mounted.
Note: This mount, without the mounting block and SCT accessory bracket can attach directly to the slots in the Tele Vue telescope ring mounts.
When used with the SAB-1001 SCT accessory bracket, this part is normally permanently attached to the X-Y adjustable mount U-channel with 2 #10-32 button head screws.
This part should be permanently installed on the desired area of your SCT using screws supplied with the SCT. The plastic knob locks the mounting block (carrying the X-Y adjustable mount) in place. Note the safety stop and safety counterbore for security. Position on SCT so that stop-screw faces eyepiece end of telescope.
