Description

TeleVue's Gibraltar HD5 mount mates the rock-solid Gibraltar HD tripod with a larger, heavier alt-az head designed for our 5" scopes. The head is an inch wider than the original Tele-Pod version, has larger bearings, and cradle holes to accept the Tele Vue NP127 baseplate as well as all other TeleVue scopes.

The large bearing surfaces and thick wood legs of the Gibraltar HD tripod handles the load for high power viewing. Leg extensions raise the altitude axis to 5-feet, still ideally sized for use with our Air-Chair observing stool. Scale on leg extensions allows repeatable setting to desired height. A wood accessory tray ties the legs together for rigidity. Built-in pier allows for high-altitude viewing. A bubble-level is integrated into the tripod base. Metal ground spikes with rubber tips are provided. Gibraltar HD5 accepts all accessories including Sky Tour (spacers STS-5002 required to fasten the azimuth encoder cover to the wider baseplate).

Optional Sky Tour Pre-installed

Sky Tour mounts include Sky Tour, encoders, Sky Tour Caddy and Eyepiece Caddy set.
