Prima Luce Guide rings PLUS 80mm
If you want to install a guide telescope in parallel to the main one, guide rings offer the simplest and cheapest solution to make this. The Guide rings PLUS 80mm offer a high build quality and all the features useful for this application, allowing you to install guide telescopes such as 60mm diameter refractors.
Like all the other elements of the PLUS series, these guide rings are made with high mechanical precision (built with CNC machines from aluminum block) and specially designed to enable you to easily install other mechanical elements such as support rings, plates or dovetail clamps.
The guide rings PLUS 80mm are part of our system PLUS (Prima Luce Universal System) which includes many guide rings, support rings, plates 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 guide rings PLUS 80mm. 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.
Thanks to the particular design, the guide rings PLUS 80mm can be:
- screwed (with 2 screws each) directly on all the PLUS compatible support rings or with a single screw on support rings from other brands (which have a center hole).
- screwed (with 2 screws each) on the PLUS dovetail clamps: if you install a Vixen or Losmandy PLUS plate above the support rings of your telescope, you can slide the guide rings in the perfect position to properly balance the weight of the guide telescope.
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 guide rings on plates or support rings through a screw.
