Sold Vixen Large accessory Plate ( AM-AD-3808 I think)with dovetail and two dovetail clamps – for mounting two scopes side by side. Very rigid. Its finish is showing its age – but works exactly as it should. $200
Make an offer if you think the price too high.
Pick up from Kew, Melbourne, I can drop in Geelong, or ask for postage if not specified.
