An anti-dew heater, built-in offset, and finger adjustable collimation are optional features you can have built in to your secondary mount. See more details...

We make the spider to fit your tube or upper cage's diameter with a small gap between the tips of the spider and the tube wall. This permits minor centering adjustments. Provide your actual inside diameter with your order.
