I have a permanent pier with a Paramount MX compatible plate. Is there an adapter plate that is available that will enable me to mount a DDM85?

 

I'm assuming a square pier plate that aligns with the SB corner bolts, that has the ASA DDM85 Base in the middle.

Hi Stefan,

 

The number of customers for such an adapter is so low that you won't find it on the shelf.

But this is not a complicated piece of metal. Either you can do it by yourself or find someone to do it for you for a reasonable fee.

 

Best regards.

Bernard

Hi Robert,

 

Thank you for the proposal, but I already found someone some years ago to build my pier adaptor to avoid meridian flips:

But Stefan may be interested...

 

Best regards.
