I am looking at purchase of a ZWO AM5. Question: would it be possible to fit a Losmandy saddle? My motivation: I have lots of Losmandy dovetails and a saddle hanging around. A chimera (Vixen/Losmandy stack) might be possible but a Losmandy saddle would be cleaner solution.

Thanks, Ed

ZWO specs says that the default saddle supports both Vixen and Losmandy. I have only put a Vixen on mine yet, but the saddle is a quality product and probably doesn't need an update.

The saddle will accept both Vixen and Losmandy style.
