Purchased new in June 2002, the entire setup is in mint condition.
The Ash Panoramic mount is tight and solid, complete with accessory tray, and factory installed Sky Tour system with Lorenzin 2000+ database (v1.99).
Sky Tour adds "brains" to the Tele Vue Panoramic mount. With its Lorenzin 2000+ database and refinements such as dimmable red light display, backlit button names, 10-character speed-adjustable scrolling display, and advanced "identify" capability, Sky Tour brings the hand-held computer to a new level -- a Tele Vue level of convenience and ease of use. The total system is simple enough for beginners, yet deep enough for experts to maintain a lifetime of observing enthusiasm. Sky Tour computer and encoders can be integrated into most any telescope mount. The Sky Tour computer can be initialized and custom calibrated for the following types of mounts: altitude-azimuth, German equatorial, fork mount, and equatorial table.
Sky Tour can interface with TheSky astronomy program from Software Bisque, Inc. Connecting your TheSky equipped Pocket PC, Windows, or Macintosh computer, to Sky Tour yields instant access the TheSky's copious object database. Locating and identifying celestial objects is easy, as your screen displays a sky chart indicating exactly where your telescope is pointing at all times. TheSky's real-time centering display easily guides you to the target.
The Panoramic mount also includes a factory installed eyepiece caddy (holds 5 eyepieces, three 1.25" and two 2" eyepieces) and integral bracket for the TeleVue SkyTour computer.
This mount is ideal for the Pronto, TV-76, TV-85, or similar sized scopes, and is perfect for travel. Shown in the photo with a TV-76.
