Lyra © Double Double Mounting System

Designed for quick mounting of guide scopes, cameras and finder scopes on telescopes with just the click of two buckles.
The Lyra © DDMS replaces two sets of two mounting rings and all the nuts and bolts.
The Regular Model of the Lyra DDMS attaches to your scope with an adjustable bungee cord.
Just snap the two buckles and it is secure.
The Deluxe Model, there are captive metal springs (in protective tubing) that attach to quick connect J-slots.
You can also permanently mount the Lyra DDMS if you desire, as the feet have holes for screw mounting with screws up to 10-32.

The Lyra © DDMS replaces two sets of tube rings. No screws or parts to lose in the dark, it just snaps on with two buckles
Low Weight, 6oz. No Tools Needed

Snap one buckle around your telescope, then the other buckle around you finder or guide scope and you are done
Feet have non slip urethane pads, wont mar or scratch your OTA

Did the case for your telescope not have enough room to fit with a finder attached?
One buckle and you can attach or remove your finder

Can also be used with an adapter, such as our Uni-Bracket to attach a scope to almost anything. Lyra also has threaded holes to attach to a tripod

The Lyra is available in different colors and metals. The Deluxe model attaches with quick mount springs (covered in silicon tubing for springs not shown)

Tired of needing Three hands to adjust your finder? You only need two with the Lyra DDMS. The ends of the alignment screws are protected from scratching your scope with nylon cap nuts
The Lyra includes two "eyes" for use as a unity finder. There are also optional mounting kits. Example of the camera mount, there is also one for a laser pointer
