The Orion SkyView AZ mount is a heavy-duty altazimuth mount that can support large telescopes weighing up to 25 lbs. — without the need for counterweights — allowing smooth, simple, stable operation. It's designed to hold one telescope, or two telescopes side by side!

Orion's SkyView AZ altazimuth head features dual dovetail slots to allow attachment of two telescopes in tandem, to double your viewing versatility. (You do have more than one telescope, don't you?) Now you can keep, say, your rich-field refractor and your long focal-length Mak or SCT on the same mount at the same time! Or your daytime spotting scope and your deep space reflector. You'll be a hit with your family, your friends, and fellow star-partiers whom you can invite to view right along with you.

The SkyView AZ mount provides a stable platform for easy altazimuth viewing with telescopes as large as an 8" reflector or 9.25" Schmidt-Cassegrain. Two telescopes of up to 25 lbs. each can be mounted simultaneously. They can be positioned parallel to each other or offset in altitude to point to different parts of the sky. Large knurled-aluminum knobs on both axes allow the tension to be optimized for smooth motion. The beefy 1-3/4"-diameter steel tripod legs adjust in height and are braced by a combination spreader bar/accessory tray for extra rigidity.

Whether you have one telescope or two to put on it, you will soon wonder how you ever got along without the Orion SkyView AZ mount's stability, portability, and effortless maneuverability. Weighs 19 lbs., 8 oz.
