I have a D style dovetail bar that came with a scope I just bought used. It's 14" long and looks like your standard universal bar but my Farpoint D style attachments won't clamp to it. The bar is a tad too narrow. I also have a Losmandy universal 14" bar and they clamp fine to it. The narrow bar has the letters TS on the side so does this stand for Teleskop Service?
There is really not much that can be done besides getting a proper width bar. Just curious if anyone else with a TS bar has had any issues. I guess another way to look at it is the Farpoint dovetail accessories don't have enough travel in the close direction.
The new scope juju . . . if it's not bad weather then it's equipment glitches to keep you from trying it out.
