Removed black aftermarket dovetail plate.

This plate alone, without the corresponding black dovetail insert plate, weighs 5.4lbs. Taking this, the 3.71 lb male dovetail and the alt/wedge off the mount reduces its travel weight by 15.51 lbs. This reduces the initial 70.6 lb mount to 55.09 lbs.

Inherent Parsec dec plate with four through holes, non threaded holes.

Closer view.

Hole spacing along the long axis of the dec plate, ~4-7/8" on centers.


Cross width of hole pattern.

Slightly less than 4-7/8". Holes are probably suppose to be equadistant but are off slightly.
