Hello to all.

 

Just getting "restarted" (was at least a novice back in High School) in this great hobby since now in retirement I have the time.

 

I have a C11 Edge HD on a CGX-L mount. I purchased a stock Celestron dovetail for the top of the OTA to mount accessories (see pic).

 

I'd like to mount my various Canon Cameras and a 80mm Takahashi, not at the same time, onto this "rail."

 

I've checked TRO and ADM accessories and I can't seem to find what I need.

 

Any Ideas or suggestions in pointing me in the right direction?

 

Many thanks - Frank.

If you google "Losmandy Clamp" you should find a lot of options for clamps that will attach to that top rail.

That's Vixen, no? OP needs Losmandy. ADM has one with a 1/4"-20 mount built in for the camera; there are others with rings.

D and V series. So, it is both Vixen and Losmandy.
