Product Description

235-17 Dovetail Hollow Adapter

Converts a 3½”-8 external thread to a dovetail mount

The 235-17 has an internal 3½”-8 thread on its underside, which mounts to many of our stands and other adapters. A through-hole in the adapter accepts a dovetail mount such as that found on our various lateral slides, and allows unrestricted plummet sights. Two socket head setscrews secure the inserted dovetail, and allow the lateral slide (or other dovetail-equipped unit) to rotate into any azimuth direction until tightened.
See a list of all of our instrument adapters, or look at an entire range of heavy duty or portable stands on this website.
