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. Our most popular is the Celestron Advanced VX, which comes with a mount case. Alt-Azimuth telescope mounts are great for easy point and view visual observations. Some of the most popular include the Explore Scientific Twilight and iOptron Cube Pro. 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.
