#19235 - Libra Systems - Keller EZ-Saddle

Installing a heavy OTA has never been easier than with the new Keller EZ-Saddle.  Designed by Allan Keller of PlaneWave Instruments, the EZ-Saddle offers innovative features never before seen in a telescope saddle plate.

Keller EZ-Saddle top saddle viewThe latest component of the Libra dovetail system, Optec's new Keller EZ-Saddle makes mounting large telescopes quick and easy.  Featuring plenty of mounting options and  bolt package kits for the PlaneWave / Ascension Instruments A200 mount, Astro-Physics mounts, Celestron CGE Pro, Losmandy G11, Mountain Instruments MI-250,  and the Paramount Versaplate (for tandem mounting) the EZ-Saddle offers a standard Losmandy "D" plate receiver saddle to fit nearly any telescope OTA.

The stability bar can be removed to reduce weight once the telescope is securely in place.  A registration notch allows the mating D-plate to be marked for quick and easy re-balancing.  All fasteners are stainless and the tensioning knobs are available in several color options.
