How to mount AT72EDII to Sky Watcher Star Adventurer
Posted 26 February 2021 - 08:21 AM
I was all excited to put it on my Star Adventurer mount but then realized that the SA mount only has a small screw designed for a DSLR.
Can you please recommend the best way to safely mount it? I know it needs to be able to slide back and forth for balancing. I mostly want to make sure that it’s secure so I don’t have to worry about it falling off.

Most aftermarket Vixen dovetail claps would have a 1/4-20 thread hole centered in the clamp. That would mount to the "DSLR" screw which is 1/4-20. There should also be additional threaded holes in the clamp to provide a set screw to be sure the whole thing does not rotate once installed.

+1 on the Scopestuff Dovetail shoe. It is fine for something as lightweight as the AT72EDII.
