Explore Scientific Twilight Nano Alt-Az Mount & Tripod


This Explore Scientific FirstLight Twilight Nano Alt-Azimuth Mount includes a sturdy steel ST1 tripod with 1.25" diameter legs with a minimum height of 25.5" and a maximum height of 45". Included handle enables smooth movements.

A lightweight alt-azimuth mount and tripod, the Twilight Nano is designed to conveniently accept modest scopes, such as small Mak-Cassegrains, small refractors, small solar scopes, and, naturally, the ED80. Short, fast Newtonians are also suitable for the Explore Scientific Twilight Nano. So long as the weight of your telescope is not over 14 pounds and has a Vixen-style Universal Dovetail bar for mounting the optical tube to the mount head, you are set.
