Farpoint Vixen Dovetail Plate - Meade 8 Inch SCT
This company has good stuff - I've ordered from them a few years ago. Trying to get a dovetail plate has been a nightmare though. They charge extra for "priority shipping" but basically they just use a third party to take it to the post office. Good luck after that! I called after ten days when the tracking showed it hadn't made it more than 40 miles from Farpoint. At present, weeks later, I still haven't received my dovetail plate, the tracking says I have received it, it also says they've failed to deliver it and email to Farpoint Astro has gone unanswered. Maybe they do a better job in the US but I won't touch them again from here in Canada.
The supports are a little tight. I think it's because it's an old meade OTA. However it is 100% functional. Upgrade to the original dovetail. Is too short for a good balance.
This rail is solidly built and connected to my Meade 8 SCT perfectly with the provided screws. Its heavy but its solid.
