This mount provides heavy-duty Alt-Azimuth telescope carrying capabilities up to about 12kg payload. The advantage of this design is that there is no need for a counterweight as a second optical system can be used as a counterweight when attaching comparatively heavy telescope tubes. This mount will easily handel lightweight tubes even on their own.

This mount is similar to the original Skytee mount or sometimes also called GIAZ - Giant Alt-Azimuth Mount.
It differs from the current Skytee-2 by the lack of fine tuning, although moving the telescope tubes is very easy and smooth when the tube is well balanced in the Vixen compatible dovetail clamp. It is also lighter than the Skytee-2, so it might be a more convenient solution if you carry your equipment around a lot... Although the Skywatcher Skytee-2 comes with fine tuning and the ability to attach one more tube, but it is also more expensive.
