Product Description

Orion U-Mount and Paragon Plus XHD Package

This isn't your ordinary altazimuth mount and tripod. The Orion U-Mount and Paragon Plus XHD package offers a very solid platform for your large binocular, small telescope or even spotting scope, whether you are star gazing or viewing terrestrial objects. It boasts some key feature distinctions which make it stand out from the crowd. No matter where your telescope or binocular is pointed, the U-Mount always keeps your equipment balanced, yielding incredibly stable views. The swept-back side arms allow equipment to point at any angle from just below the horizon to all the way up to 90 degree elevation, as well as full 360 degree azimuth rotation.

Any telescope which utilizes the standard Vixen dovetail rail can clamp to the U-Mount, and we've even included a 1/4"-20 adapter, so binoculars and spotting scopes which use the standard tripod mounting socket on the bottom will also attach. Below the U-Mount, the Paragon Plus XHD tripod will hold your equipment solidly, with adjustable legs and neck to find the exact height you require.

The Orion U-Mount is made of very solid aluminum and provides smooth and confident motion in both altitude (up/down) and azimuth (left/right) axes, thanks to the quality of the low friction bearing surfaces. Tension can be adjusted in both axes, and because of the solid aluminum build quality, the U-Mount can hold an incredible amount of weight. Try attaching even our biggest binoculars such as the Orion BT-100, and you'll be amazed at the stability provided by the U-Mount. The U-Mount and Paragon Plus XHD package can hold up to 25 lbs. of equipment, enough for even the largest binoculars, and even some medium-sized cassegrain or reflector telescopes.

Day or night, the versatile Orion U-Mount and Paragon Plus XHD package performs with stability and precision. Get one for your favorite grab-and-go telescope or binocular!
