I attempting to mount my C14 to my CGE Pro with your tube rings. To make this possible what do I need in addition to your rings? I would like a a dovetail opposite of the mount dovetail as well.

The Software Bisque C14 OTA Mounting Rings are specifically designed to mount directly to the Paramount mount's Versa-Plate (for example, the Paramount ME II Versa-Plate).  Specifically, the threaded holes located on the four flat sides of the OTA rings accept 1/4-20 socket-head cap screws, and the holes are spaced 3.5- and 5.5-inches apart (to match the pre-drilled through holes on the Versa-Plate).

See the Paramount OTA Ring and Taurus OTA Installation Instructions (Figures 20 and 21 show how the rings attach to the Versa-Plate) for more information.

If you are attempting to use these mounting rings on a non-Paramount mount, you'll need to (somehow) attach a mounting plate like this or this (expensive option) to the top of the CGE Pro's Dec axis.

You might contact ADM Accessories to see if they make a similar CGE Pro to OTA Ring mounting plate.
