Adjustable Piggyback Mount for SCTs
The LM1015, Deluxe Piggyback Mount for SCT telescopes, allows you to mount cameras and small telescopes, having 1/4-20 threaded mounting holes, onto medium and large telescopes. The Lumicon Deluxe Piggyback Mount is adjustable in altitude. Azimuth can be adjusted by mounting your device pointing a little left or right on the top surface plate. These adjustments enable you to align your camera with the optics of your main telescope.

The base's curvature is optimized for standard 8" SCTs but will work for other SCTs also.
