A complete, lightweight telescope mount featuring smooth alt-azimuth motions and optional Sky Tour object locating capability. Perfect for our smaller, travel-easy refractors.
Telescope height ranges from 28" to 60+". Aluminum tripod legs are 3-section, black anodized, foam covered with rubber-tipped feet. Unique, space-saving center column allow legs to fold closer together. The head and tripod are offered separately as well.
The self contained head is Sky Tour ready and can be used on any camera tripod with either a 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 stud. It is the most portable DSC mount head available. We highly recommend the Eyepiece Caddy Set accessory since the Tele-Pod Mount and standard camera tripods do not have accessory trays.
Optional Sky Tour Pre-installed
Sky Tour mounts include Sky Tour, encoders, Sky Tour Caddy and Eyepiece Caddy set.
