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.
