For years the Orion Sirius EQ-G GoTo Equatorial Mount has come with a Vixen style dovetail saddle, which was fine until you needed to mount an optical tube outfitted with a wider, Losmandy style dovetail "D" plate.

Well, now you can upgrade your Sirius EQ-G with the Orion Dual-Width Saddle for Sirius EQ-G GoTo Mount to give it the versatility to accept either type of dovetail mounting plate. This new cast-aluminum saddle features dual spring-loaded clamping slots to accommodate both narrow Vixen style plates and Losmandy style "D" plates, and two large knobs to loosen and tighten the clamps.

Orion Dual-Width Saddle for Sirius EQ-G GoTo Mount is easy to install, and instructions for doing so are included. All that's needed to remove the old saddle and attach the new one is a 2.5mm Allen key, which is included. Weighs 1 lb. 10.4 oz.

NOTE: The Orion Dual-Width Saddle for Sirius EQ-G GoTo Mount is not compatible with any other Orion GoTo mounts.
