I really enjoy this AZ8, as it is a nice way to just grab a sturdy mount, attach a nice rich field refractor and wander around the night sky!
The head comes with a plate that is attachable with a 3/8“ photo head screw - but be aware, you have some weight!
The mount has some backlash from the worm gear by design but you get used to it, the adjustment knobs are fabulous.
You also could set the mount into your living room - looking that nice ;) (Posted on 4/19/2020)
