Installing a heavy OTA has never been easier than with the Keller EZ-Saddle. Designed by Allan Keller of PlaneWave Instruments, the EZ-Saddle offers innovative features never before seen in a telescope saddle plate.

The latest component of the Optec Libra dovetail system, Optec's new Keller EZ-Saddle makes mounting large telescopes quick and easy. Featuring plenty of mounting options and bolt package kits for;

PlaneWave, Astro-Physics, Celestron CGE Pro, Losmandy G11 mounts and the Paramount Versaplate (for tandem mounting)

The EZ-Saddle offers a standard Losmandy "D" plate receiver saddle to fit nearly any telescope OTA.

Some of the unique design improvements include placing the clamp tensioning knobs on the bottom side making them easy to reach when mounting the telescope. Safety features include a stability bar along the front edge to provide enough relief to reach down to tighten the clamps located on the same front or bottom side. The stability bar can be removed to reduce weight once the telescope is securely in place. A registration notch allows the mating D-plate to be marked for quick and easy re-balancing.
