Please Note: This is a brand new product and item from Antares. Unfortunately, the machining and finish on all of these new brackets is not perfect. There are some rough/sharp edges, scuff/nick marks, and/or unanodized spots on the finder brackets, which is why we are selling this entire lot as "cosmetic blems" at a lower price. For examples, please see photos 3 and 4 above.
This is a new Antares quick-release finder bracket with two rings for 50mm finders. While the rings are the same as Antares' popular F50DTB rings, this new item uses a more commonly used Synta/Vixen style dovetail base for attachment to your telescope as compared to the Antares-proprietary style on the F50DTB rings..
Each ring includes three-point screw adjustment for precisely aligning your finder. This bracket can be used with finder tubes 1.2" - 2.2" in diameter. All metal with black matte finish and nylon screws.
A standard Vixen/Synta style base is included (center-to-center hole spacing requirement of 19.4mm). The base will sit on any flat or curved surface, although the hole spacing on this base will not fit SCT telescopes.
