I purchased to swap a Celestron original CGE Bar off a EdgeHD 9.25 so able to use on a Evolution mount. The bar is solid, well made dare I say better feels quality than the CGE and the original dovetail on the original Nexstar 9.25. Screws are provided and fit perfectly.

Well engineered does job perfectly

Very easy to fit to my Meade SCT using the supplied slightly longer hex bolts which exactly match the originals. Took a couple of minutes to fit and provide a secure mounting for camera or whatever. A quality bar and highly recommended.

ADM Vixen bar fitted to 6SE
Friday, 18 October 2013  | 

I have a Baader SCT steeltrack, 2" diagonal etc. fitted to my 6SE and I could not balance it correctly - way rear heavy. My solution was to use an 8" Celestron ADM Dovetail set and modify to correctly fit the 6SE's profile. I can now balance my setup perfectly and with the spacers that were supplied in the kit, I get a better clearance from the mounting arm than had been possible with the original bar. It does require some tooling changes but was very worthwhile. As mentioned by the previous reviewer (not related) the ADM parts are top quality.

Dovetail for 10 SCT
Sunday, 5 June 2011  | 

I was a bit sceptical of mounting such a large telescope as a meade 10" sct on a vixen dovetail, but having received and fitted it to my SCT i am very confident in the ability to support the scope. The bar is of quality construction.


Please fill in the form below to ask a question.

Q1. Will the Celestron dovetail also fit the EDGE HD SCT telescopes?

Yes, the Celestron Edge HD and regular SCT telescopes share the same hole pattens to attach the dovetail.
