The Prima Luce Lab Losmandy dovetail for 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes comprises of a 350mm PLUS Losmandy bar and PLUS radius blocks and can be easily installed either above or below Celestron C8 or EdgeHD 800 and Meade SC or ACF 8" tubes.
This kit belongs to the PLUS system (Prima Luce Universal System) that includes a large variety of telescope rings, bars, guide rings and dovetail clamps. The bar has a system of slots, drilled and threaded holes that maximize the compatibility between parts, allowing several mechanical combinations and assembly solutions.
Each component of the PLUS system is carved from aluminium blocks that are CNC machined. Then, the aluminium is sandblasted to achieve a very smooth surface finish and is anodized (hard anodizing) to increase the hardness of the material and to protect it from oxidation.
