Astronomy Laser Bracket ships with your choice of three (3) mounting base plates:
Wide 2.35" Base. With a radius-cut of 9.25", the base mounts snugly to virtually any reflector. Pre-existing holes with center-to-center spacing of 1.0" to 2.1" may be used to mount the base using two (2) screws; or four (4) screws with 1.75" center-to-center spacing may be used. Mounting hardware (8-32 screws/nuts) included.
Features a smaller base to take up less space on your refractor. With a radius-cut of 1.75", the base fits snugly on most refractors, and is mounted with industrial-strength double-sided tape, included. Base is 1.12" wide at the bottom; 0.88" wide at top and 1.5" long. Height to ring-top is 2.6".
Tripod Base Plate
Mount your Laser Bracket to any camera tripod with standard 1/4-20 threads.
