Cradle 95S


Cradles are the standard tube rings for fixing Takahashi optical tube assemblies to the mounts. Footprints of the cradles are adapted to the heads of the Takahashi mounts. They are systematically provided with two 8.8 mm diameter holes; they are fixed to the Takahashi mounts by means of 2 M8 screws, delivered with cradles. The top of the cradle has a small flat surface with a 1/4"-20tpi screw (Kodak). It is possible to attach a camera to it in parallel.

Takahashi cradles are made of cast aluminium. The finishing of each one is done manually. Felt parts ensure the protection of the optical tube.
