How to connect PLUS dovetail bars to other PLUS elements
How to connect PLUS dovetail bars to other PLUS elementsPLUS dovetail plates for telescopes offer holes, threaded holes and slots to connect other PLUS elements with standard M6 screws, with maximum rigidity and avoiding flexures. PLUS dovetail bars are available in Vixen and Losmandy styles and with different lengths. Like all the elements of the PLUS system, PLUS dovetail bars are made with high precision mechanics (built with CNC machines from aluminum block). Aluminum is then sandblasted to achieve a very smooth surface finish and is anodized (hard anodizing) to increase the hardness of the material and protect it from oxidation.
How to use PLUS support rings with PLUS dovetail bars, guide rings and EAGLE
How to use PLUS support rings with PLUS dovetail bars, guide rings and EAGLEPLUS support rings are available in different diameters in order to fit different telescopes. All of them are provided with holes and threaded holes for M6 screws in order to let you easily connect to all the other PLUS elements like dovetail bars, guide rings and EAGLE control units. In fact we specifically designed the PLUS system to allow you connect all the elements with at least 2 screws and avoid flexures. Let’s see how to use PLUS support rings with PLUS dovetail bars, guide rings and EAGLE.
Remote observatory control with EAGLE
Remote observatory control with EAGLEAstronomical observatories are often installed in remote and isolated places to avoid light pollution. In this article we will see how EAGLE helps control the remote observatory starting from the example of the Fiemme Astronomy Association that has an important astronomical observatory in Tesero (TN – Italy). The amateur astronomers in Fiemme Astronomy Association conduct global outreach by showing the beauty of the night sky to those vacationing in nearby hotels, visiting from all around the world! In order to do all of these, they have a large 50cm diameter Ritchey-Chretien telescope, together with a 18 cm diameter apochromatic refractor in parallel. All the telescopes are installed on a large fork equatorial mount.
