The Baader Modular Guidescope Rings provide an extremely solid mounting for auxiliary and guide telescopes. They include several unique and useful features which distinguish them from other guidescope rings.
Multiple flats and mounting holes machined around the periphery allow these rings to be coupled to each other, permitting you to interconnect multiple auxiliary telescopes in a number of configurations.
The construction of these rings make them ideally suited for guidescopes and large or heavy auxiliary telescopes. In order to minimize flexure they are machined of extra-heavy aluminum (3/8" wall thickness!, 1.1" width!) and utilize oversized stainless clamp screws with large diameter knurled knobs.
The unique design of the adjustable clamp screws incorporates large diameter non-marring nylon tips, which are mounted on machined brass bearings. This allows the tip to rotate, preventing any damage to the finish of your telescope.
