Celestron's new German Equatorial mount has precision worm gears on both axes for extremely smooth stability. The key element that makes this system the most stable in its class is the new heavy-duty tripod with larger and more substantial legs that offer excellent damping characteristics for more stable views. The mount also has a convenient latitude scale for easier alignment.
