Quote:I also just got this adapter for my observatory.Very high quality and buildt.The center bolt does come with it but you need a large allen hex wrench to use it.I somehow had one in my dads old toolbox.They should include a handle or wrench for this for the price they charge.But a great plate adapter.Bob
