Explore Scientific Camera Dovetail Plate



The Explore Scientific Camera Dovetail Plate is created from high-pressure injection die-cast aluminum for structural integrity. This 45 mm wide V-block, (similar to Vixen dovetail style), is 280mm (11-inches) long. Its black anodized surface is laser etched in 2mm increments on one side, to help you quickly determine the balance point when placing the camera on the mount head. A stainless steel plate is on the opposite side to protect the dovetail casting when securing it to the mount head. 

The dovetail plate is machined for 3 positions with rubber anti-slip pads, and comes complete with a 1/4x20 attaching bolt and spring-loaded safety pin for mounting a camera body. 

Suitable for use on all Explore Scientific mounts and other-brand mounts that accept the popular "Vixen-style" dovetail plate width. Weighs only 8.5 oz.
