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 comes with a handle, accepts optional encoders, and can be used on any camera tripod with either a 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 stud. It is the most portable Digital Setting Circle-ready 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.
The Tele-Pod mount 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.
