Concept: Since portability and ease-of-use are design goals for all Tele Vue telescopes, we developed alt-azimuth mounts which share these same goals. The Tele Vue yoke and cradle design offers balanced, smooth motions. Tripod selection ranges from the extremely portable aluminum Tele-pod to the rock-solid wooden Gibraltar HD.

TeleVue's Gibraltar HD5 mount mates the rock-solid Gibraltar HD tripod with a larger, heavier alt-az head designed for Televue's 5" scopes. The head is an inch wider than the original Tele-Pod version, has larger bearings, and cradle holes to accept the Tele Vue NP127 baseplate as well as all other Tele Vue 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 our 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 Sky Tour (spacers STS-5002 required to fasten the azimuth encoder cover to the wider baseplate).
