I bought a Vixen to Losmandy D saddle for my LX75 mount from them. Very nice unit, fast shipping too. I'm very happy with it.

Only criticism is I found the website a bit confusing, so I bought the Losmandy saddle + Vixen adapter, instead of the Losmandy/Vixen combo.

Anthony, the owner of ADM, will jump through hoops to get you what you need and get it delivered ASAP. I too found the web site a bit confusing as I was quite new to the hobby and wasn't clear on the terminology. I just emailed him, told him what I had and what I wanted to do and then he got back to me as to what parts to order. Everything worked out just great. I don't think you will have any problems.

It is a piece of art. Reasonably priced and very prompt delivery.
None better than ADM if you ask me.

I was able to order customised versions also, DPA adapter plate without pre-drilled holes.
About DC8 rails, one attachment screw was too long for my C8 OTA. That problem was solved with metal spacers under screw....

One more word for Anthony.. I got interested in mounting my eq6 on a semi-permanent concrete pier and was looking for parts... I contacted ADM. I dont have a clue how he does it all but he is now going to build a prototype adapter so that I can easily adapt my eq6 to a pier. This guy must have oodles of emails like mine and he is still quick and knowledgeable and ready to adapt. I have full confidence that I'll get a part which is useful. Also got 2 dovetails last night late, already shipped today, now you cant beat that!
I have had nothing but excellent service with Anthony, and I've asked him for some "semi-custom" stuff as well (mainly configuration tweaks of multiple products he already sells), but have noticed he's willing to work with you on almost any mounting or machined hardware problem you have that is Astro-related, and he's very good about letting you know if he's swamped or how long these "custom" jobs might be.
Of course now that I've said that I fear he's going to become too swamped now to finish up his next project for me.
