Optec-4300 to PlaneWave Adapter

Starting Price: $135.00
Price as Configured: $135.00
Brand: Optec / SKU: OP-19842

The #19842 adapter fits beneath the PlaneWave pinch-plate on the 14-inch and large CDK telescopes.  This adapter allows attachment of Optec's Gemini Focusing Rotator or TCF-Lynx3 Gen2 3-inch focuser.

Special Note:  for the very lowest profile mounting of the Gemini, Optec recommends replacing the socket cap screws holding PlaneWave's pinch-plate in place with flat-head screws.  This requires countersinking the holes on the pinch-plate.

You can also choose an adapter for the CDK12.5 which fits under the large pinchplate for the 12.5-inch CDK OTA. Presents male 4300 dovetail for Gemini. Approximately 1/2" thick.
