TeleVue Gibraltar HD5 mount mates the rock-solid Gibraltar HD tripod with a larger, heavier alt-az head designed for the Televue 5" scopes. The head is an inch wider than the original Tele-Pod version, has larger bearings, and cradle holes to accept the TeleVue 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 the Televue 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 encoders (spacers [STS-5002] are required to fasten the azimuth encoder cover to the wider baseplate) for object locating with a computer.
The Gibralatar HD5 is also available with the Televue [2160 step, 0.167-degree/step (10-arcminute/step) resolution] encoder package already pre-installed. The encoder-mount packages come with the cables necessary to work with your Digital Setting Circles or computer (DSC / Computer). This equipment greatly enhances your observing fun and capability of your telescope. We also sell an encoder kit (STN-4001) for existing mounts without encoders. For utmost convenience, we recommend the optional Eyepiece Caddy to hold your eyepieces within arms reach.
