ADM V Series

The ADM V series of dovetails and accessories conform to the popular Vixen style, featuring a 1.7-inch dovetail bar width and matching accessory adapters. Based on the dimensions of the accessories originally produced by Vixen, the V series is now a standard across several telescope brands and is manufactured by multiple companies, including ADM.

The ADM Vixen series includes the following accessories:

  • Dovetail Bars: Telescope dovetail bars are used to attach telescope optical tubes to mounts. These bars also allow you to attach accessories to the top of an optical tube, such as camera mounts, guide scope rings and other parts. The Vixen dovetail bar is one of the most common styles, also known as the V style.  The Vixen mount system includes mating surfaces of dovetail bars that are about 1.5 inches wide.
  • Tube Rings: Tube rings are a major part of the interface between an optical tube and an accessory like a telescope mount. These tube rings connect to a dovetail bar, helping the bar set in place within a mount saddle.
  • Counterweights: Counterweights are also included in the V series — they’re used in combination with Vixen style dovetails for SCTs. Counterweights are used to offset the weight of a camera, guide scope or another accessory, minimizing the load drive on your telescope’s motor.

These accessories are compatible with several telescope mounts from brands including Celestron, iOptron, Meade, Orion and Vixen. To ensure that your telescope is compatible with a V series accessory, check the recommendations for your specific model or speak with someone from a knowledgeable astronomy resource like Skies Unlimited.
