Alt-Az Mount
« on: May 19, 2017, 09:15:25 am »
Hello to all,


Anyone have a relatively cheap Alt-Az mount that they are looking to get rid of?  It needs to be sturdy enough to hold at least 12 lbs with stability and I would prefer slow motion controls.  Let me know, please.

Thanks,
Andy

Hi Andy:
I saw this on High Point Scientific:

I'm familiar with this setup, Celestron uses it on all of their AstroMaster telescopes.

Thanks for recommendation... that mount won't hold enough weight.   Appreciate the info though.   Leaning toward Explore Scientific Twilight or Vixen Porta.
