How much does an ADM dual mounting bar weigh?


Recommended Posts

I'm presently working out my options for upgrading the set up in my observatory.  Part of this process involves working out how to mount the scopes.  I would like to find out how much the ADM D Series dual mounting bar weighs.

I've looked online and can't find anywhere that holds this information.  Can anyone help?

A little over 3 Kilo ( 3.5 Kilo boxed)

Cheers, that's what I feared.  Using such a heavy mounting bar would push the rig's weight to around 20 kg. That's 2kg over the 18kg recommended maximum load for imagong with an EQ6-GT.

I have one of these for my 130P-DS and ST80 guide 'scope but find it to be very long, with the effect that the rig can foul the pier earlier after the meridian than if it were shorter. Lately I've gone back to using an old 11" Vixen bar with dual saddles.
