The AZ5 mount provides heavy-duty Alt-Azimuth telescope carrying capabilities up to about 8kg payload. There is no need for a counterweight as a the optical system is placed above the centre of the tripod in its original setup, however it is possible to change the position of the arm from full vertical into an angled position.

Fine movement is possible on both axes. This mount will easily handel lightweight tubes even on their own.

This mount is similar to the original Orion VersaGo III mount.
Vixen-compatible dovetail clamp holds the telescope's dovetail bar.

Head base can be replaced by the included photo compatible base (with 3/8" photo thread) to use it on top of a heavy-duty photographic tripod. In this case the max payload will also depend on the capabilities of the tripod, most likely less than the original payload of the complete system (less than 8kg).

 

INCLUDED

  • Alt-Azimuth Mounting Head with fine tuning (micro-movement)
  • Mounting base with 3/8" photo thread

This customer purchased the item at our site.
Bought initially to use with my 15x70 binoculars, but is also used with my 4" refractor scope without any balancing issues.
Good points:
Robustness - has a very solid feel
Smooth slow-motion action on both axes, with effective locks
High payload capacity
Light weight
Fits M10 or 3/8" tripod threads

Overall a very useful piece of kit which allows you to scroll the sky past your viewport with ease.

Advantages: Robustness - has a very solid feel
Smooth slow-motion action on both axes, with effective locks
High payload capacity
Light weight
Fits M10 or 3/8" tripod threads

Disadvantages: Paint finish is too thick in places
Flexi-cables come undone too easily
