Good Evening Everyone,

 

Is there an adapter to fit my 6se onto my CGEM mount or do I need to buy a rail for it? 

 

Thank you,

Back when I had a CGEM I replaced the saddle with a dual saddle. That and this tripod spreader totally changed my CGEM.

Another option is the Orion 7953 dovetail adapter, lets you use narrow dovetails on wide dovetail mounts.

 

Half the price of the ADM adapter (which is, like all ADM items, super well put together).
