The ultimate "grab-n-go" companion for your portable telescope, the new TwiLight I Altaz Mount has geared slow motions with flexible cable controls for fine altitude and azimuth adjustments. Its sturdy metal continuously adjustable-height tripod will withstand years of rugged use.
This mount, with its adjustable-angle head, provides a lighter and more versatile alternative to the TwiLight II mount. It has all the smoothness and versatility of its dual-head cousin in just one head, making it smaller, lighter, and providing you with the mobility and ease that you desire. The TwiLight I is a perfect choice for all of your viewing needs and it is made with all the special care and craftsmanship of all Explore Scientific products.
The TwiLight I is perfect for the Explore Scientific ED80, ED102, and AR102. It's also a great choice for most brand small-to-medium telescopes that use a Vixen-style dovetail mounting plate.
Although designed for small-to-medium size telescopes, heavier telescopes (e.g. ED127, and Comet Hunter) may also be used with the TwiLight I where larger tripods and mounts cannot be transported (e.g. during travel expeditions, etc).
