When selecting a telescope mount it is important that you select a mount that has more then enough payload capacity to support your telescope and any accessories you plan on adding to your telescope. A general rule of thumb is to never exceed 80% of your telescope mount's payload capacity when visual observing and never exceed 60% of your mount's payload capacity when imaging.

There are two main telescope mount types, equatorial mounts and alt-azimuth mounts. Equatorial mounts are great platforms for imaging and visual observing. Alt-Azimuth mounts are great for easy, point and view visual observing. Each mount type comes in computerized and non-computerized configurations. A great mount can truly boost the celestial observing experience of any amateur astronomer. Be sure to reach out to one of our telescope experts if you would like further assistance in selecting the mount that best fits your observing needs.
