Stellarvue M1V Alt-Azimuth Mount Head - M001V


Stellarvue M1V Alt-Azimuth Mount Head

Weighing in at just 2.5 pounds, the Stellarvue M001V is a small alt-azimuth mount head that connects to any heavy-duty camera tripod column via a standard 3/8-16 thread. This smooth mount employs a 2" Teflon bearing and a stainless steel roller bearing on both axes. Comes with a small Vixen dovetail shoe compatible with all standard Vixen-style dovetail rails.

With this M1V alt-az head mounted to a camera tripod, you'll enjoy improved smoothness and stability while exploring the night skies or terrestrial landscapes. Accepts telescopes weighing up to 9 lbs., with the ability to hold slightly heavier loads when a heavy-duty wood or stainless steel tripod is used. This mount is ideal for holding smaller refractors in the 70-90 mm aperture range. Larger telescopes are more suited for Stellarvue's M002C mount. This mount head measures 3.8" in height, 4.8" in width, and is 2.4" deep. The Vixen-style spring-loaded dovetail shoe measures 3.15" in length.

The black knob and knurled bottom serve as tensioners. Turn these to adjust the tension in order to allow the smoothest movements in both axes. Slow motion controls are not necessary for this mount.
