I recently bought this mount for my AT60ED, and I was hoping to put a Celestron Star Pointer on it. However the Star Pointer mount clamps inward, and can't be inverted. Is there some kind of adapter bar that would allow me to mount the Star Pointer on my mount? Thanks.

Hmm, that looks like it will do, although it's WAY taller than I'd like it to be. It may have to do, tho I'd rather those mounts be right next to each other.

Look at ADM they have quite a few bars, mounts, clamps and adaptors. Check the ADM website or call Jeff at CCTS camera concepts and he can make suggestions.

here's another that is shorter but still taller than necessary:  https://www.stellarv...-finders-f002d/  and another similar one: https://agenaastro.c...ng-bracket.html

Thanks for  your replies. I went with the Agena unit. Lighthound's link I liked best, but it'll take a month to get to me from Hong Kong.

Red dots are adapted gun sights. The one the OP linked to is designed for air guns and .22 caliber rifles while the SV linked by another poster is designed for more powerful rifles that use Weaver type bases. In other words there are two different sizes of the clamp design.

This is the size the Celestron Star pointer uses.

This will work with a Celestron Star Pointer but I have not seen them sold without a red dot finder but for $29 does it matter?

I already have one of the linked.

I like the hollow design.

A lot lighter than the solid ones.

 

Ordered 2 more last month.

Took 15 days from order day to arrival.

 

I'm using them for these:

Interesting, how do you like the Reflex Sight? Most people say it's too bright at the dimmest setting. I thought of getting one and putting a neutral density filter on the light source.

Any particular reason for the green laser? Aren't red lasers preferable? I got this hit while searching red lasers, not sure if it's adjustable tho.
