Telescopes with AZ Mounts
Telescopes with Alt-Azimuth (or Altitude Azimuth) mounts are usually best suited for observing, though they can be used for imaging of brighter objects or for deep sky imaging if paired with a Hyperstar system or an equatorial wedge. Many AZ telescopes are computerized and their GoTo systems make setup, tracking, and finding objects easy. Simpler manually-operated AZ telescope kits offer the ultimate in portability as they don't rely on an outside power source. At Telescopes.net, you can buy telescopes online with Alt-Azimuth mounts for every user level at every price point.
