Hi. 
 

I want to install my William optics redcaT 51 on Celestron cpc EdgeHD 1100 which is mounted on IOptron cem70. 
 

for this it requires saddle plate to be fixed on Celestron cpc 1100. 
 

can anyone advise me which is the right saddle plate for this ?

Proper would require a Losmandy Dovetail which would affix to the right of those screws (the two raised screws) and then the Redcat attaches to that via Rings

 

For visual I just mounted a Vixen Saddle the the Losmandy and it worked fine however not sure if that would suffice for AP purpose(s).
