(SOLD!) Very lightly used Telepod mount and head. Has the newer guiding arm and built-in level. I'm switching to an equatorial mount, so I'm selling this fine Alt-Az Televue mount. Original owner, purchased recently from Astronomics for $365 + shipping. Will sell for $250 + $30 shipping.
The Tele-Pod Mount is a complete 7 lb., Alt-Az, mounting system, great for traveling with our smaller scopes. Telescope height ranges from 28" to 62". The 2-section, black anodized, aluminum tripod legs are foam covered. Each leg has a retractable rubber- tipped foot which reveals a metal ground spike. The center column has a 1/4-20 stud on one end and a removable 3/8-16 stud base on the other end. The Yoke & Cradle type mount head balances your scope at its center of gravity. Because the Tele-Pod head has a built-in azimuth bearing, it can be removed and used on any camera tripod having 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 screws. Head and tripod also sold separately.
Tele-Pod now can be fitted with a Sky Tour system. Call Tele Vue for information.
