A great telescope mount and tripod can truly complement the celestial observing experience of any amateur astronomer. At High Point Scientific, we have a wide array of telescope tripods and mounts from the most popular brands today, such as Celestron, Meade, Orion, and many more. We offer gps mounts, dovetail mount options, GoTo telescope mount options and motorized telescope mount options to improve your nighttime stargazing experience. Be sure to reach out to one of our telescope experts if you would like help selecting a telescope mount or heavy duty tripod to best fit your observing needs.

When selecting a telescope mount it is important that you select a mount that has more than 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, the Equatorial mount and Alt-Azimuth mount. Equatorial mounts, including the German and motorized equatorial mount, are great platforms for astro-imaging and visual observing. Alt-Azimuth telescope mounts are great for easy point and view visual observations. Each mount type comes in computerized telescope mount configurations and non-computerized configurations. The telescope GoTo mount can easily find celestial objects for you, taking the guesswork out of observing. However, they can also be an added expense, which is something to consider when purchasing a new telescope mount.
