Great upgrade for my C8
Wednesday, 23 June 2021  | 

I recently bought a used C8 with the orange Vixen dovetail. It looked a bit flimsy for this size scope and was well scratched. Also with the handle on the end the scope did not sit stably on a flat surface. So I gave this ADM Losmandy bar a try and it is a huge improvement. It is very solid and lifts the OTA up a bit so that it sits stably on a flat surface when not on my mount. I set my CEM40 clamp for Losmandy and it grips this dovetail securely. A nice feature is that it comes with an end stop.

You need to spend a few minutes thinking about installation. Once you’ve studied the pattern of screw holes on the OTA it becomes clear what goes where, but it helps to have a set of hex keys to hand. Also, the OTA has two sets of screw holes at the rear end and when I removed the old Vixen bar I realised that the inner pair of holes that it used where not the ones to use with the ADM part, which is best attached with the outer pair. These were filled with flush dummy screws that had to be removed with yet another hex key. So I moved those to the inner pair and then set about installing the ADM part. You install the curved risers first then the plate. I guess some instructions would have saved me a minute or two but it was soon done.

The fact that the dovetail is set away from the OTA a little also means you can more easily use the dovetail as a handle.

So all in all more benefits than I expected.
