Very solid and sturdy made.

I'm glad I went with the long one, I'm not sure if the shorter one would have been good enough.

Long story short, I've been able to get my scope balanced.

I have several smaller scopes and needed short dovetails for them. I took this dovetail, cut it with a hacksaw, and tapped holes for the smaller scopes. This was an inexpensive way to get my smaller scopes mounted.

I intended to use this as stock to cut shorter dovetails from, but couldn't bear to deface it, it is so nice. I attached it to a Celestron 102GT, a 4-inch refractor with a 1,000mm focal length. The telescope came with a short dovetail, but it was impossible to balance. The new dovetail gives me a rock-solid attachment point that is fully adjustable.

Not too expensive and long enough to fit my Orion 8" optical tube. I'm glad I went with the long one, I'm not sure if the shorter one would have been good enough. It also helps to have the extra length so you don't have to adjust the tube rings all the time. Just slide the whole thing back and forth. My tube weight changes depending on the camera/visual setup, so this helps more that I probably appreciate. (It's the only one I've owned.)

I bought this dovetail to use in conjunction with tube rings, also from Orion I used to switch a Meade ls 8" ACF OTA from the Alt az mount to a German Equatorial. The longer dovetail allows for more flexibility when mounting and balancing. Long story short, I've been able to get my scope balanced. Using this vixen dovetail saved me the expense of having to buy another counter weight.

This rail does its job very well and at a reasonable price. I like the length; it was just what I needed. It has a nice finish, but I have found that the clamp screws on my mount are making small scars. This will not interfere with the function of the rail at all, but it would be better if the finish could take the abuse.
