The AZ5 is an excellent value Alt-Azimuth mount including tripod for telescope and binocular systems up to 8kg in weight. The complete head weighs only 6kg itself so can be transported quite easily.

The mount features an integrated clamp for Vixen GP style dovetails. The upright Altitude section of the mount can be re-positioned from its vertical position to one of several different inclined positions. This allows telescopes to be positioned in such a way that permits viewing of the zenith. In the normal upright position the mount is ideal for use with spotting scopes or other types for terrestrial viewing.

Both axis of the mount feature slow motion controls on flexible handles, allowing fine position adjustment without taking your eye away from the subject.

This version of the AZ5 includes 8192 step encoders pre-fitted. It also includes a bracket for mounting the DSC. All that is needed to navigate is to add a Nexus II or DSC and WiFi enabled Phone, Tablet or PC running a Planetarium App or Program.

Please note: The optional mount handle shown in the image is NOT included.
