Thanks to its particular design, the side by side Losmandy plate 240mm PLUS can be used:
in photographic applications where it is necessary to install two telescopes on the same mount: for example, you can install a primary imaging telescope and one for guiding; or a camera (like a DSLR) that takes the pictures through its lens and a guide telescope.
for visual applications where it is useful for the specific use, to install two telescopes in parallel.
This plate can be connected to all mounts with a Losmandy plate and the two terminals (they offer the connection for Vixen and Losmandy plates) are spaced 202mm.
The side by side Losmandy plate 240mm PLUS is part of our system PLUS (Prima Luce Universal System) which includes a large variety of support rings, plates, guide rings and dovetail clamps to offer you the maximum freedom to build your mechanical system of support, depending on the application that you want to achieve. Indeed, all the PLUS elements have threaded holes, holes and slots suitable for connecting elements, always with maximum rigidity and comfort.
For this application, we designed many elements, including the side by side Losmandy plate 240mm PLUS. Each component of the PLUS system is made of aluminum blocks that are high precision CNC machined. The 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.
If you have other brands mechanical accessories, you can still use all the elements of the PLUS system. Indeed we have provided a series of central slots that allow, for example, to fix on these support rings plate or guide rings through a screw.

PLUS is the system of dovetail bars and rings for telescopes designed by PrimaLuceLab in order to connect in a modular way telescopes and accessories in a stable manner and without flexures. All elements are made of high-strength aluminum, sandblasted, with high thickness red anodizing treatment. All PLUS elements are designed to be connected to each other always with at least two screws (M6) to ensure the greatest possible strength and the total absence of flexions, very important for astrophotography.
