SAVE 5%: Porta II Altazimuth Mount + 300mm Flexi Handles + HAL Tripod Accessory Tray

SRP £392, Save £20, Special Offer: £372

Award winning quality altazimuth mount built for simplicity, versatility and reliability. The perfect “grab and go” mount.

Designed to deliver quick and precise adjustments in vertical and horizontal directions by hand.

Originally this mount includes fine adjustment handles for locating and tracking celestial objects. In this BUNDLE these have been replaced with much longer flexible handles that will help to reduce vibration during observation.

Dovetail attachment system for maximum compatability with a wide range of optical tubes.

Supplied with removable tripod for quick and easy set-up.

Product features

Easy adjustmentEasy adjustment
The optical tube can be moved freely by hand and friction holds its position anywhere you stop it. This allows you to quickly and easily point the telescope at celestial objects you wish to view.

 

 

PortabilityPortability
The mount can be detached from the tripod by removing a single screw making it very easy to pack and transport.

 

 

Simple to useSimple to use
The Porta II adjustment system offers full circle slow motion movement. Handle positions of both altitude and azimuth slow motion controls can be altered in 45˚ increments. This allows the user to set the handles for a comfortable viewing position whatever size optical tube is used.

 

 

Accessory TrayAccessory tray
Originally the mount would be supplied with a circular accessory tray for holding eyepieces and small photographic accessories.

In this BUNDLE this has been replaced with a much larger metal accessory tray that would also provide additional stability to the tripod.

 

 

 

ToolsOnboard adjustment tools
Tools to adjust the tension of the friction system are housed on the mount. They are securely stored within the mount head but are quickly accessible.
