TeleVue Advanced Tele-Pod Mount



Best equipped for lighter TeleVue scopes up to the TV-76 (or the TV-85 if employed for terrestrial use), the TeleVue Tele-Pod Advanced Alt-Azimuth Mount is a compact, easy to use travel mount. The TeleVue Tele-Pod offers the modest size, light weight, and flexibility of a photo-tripod, combined with the smooth, balanced alt-azimuth motions of the yoke and cradle mount head.



The Tele-Pod consists of a mount head for supporting the telescope, and an aluminum tripod with rubber feet for supporting the mount. The mount head facilitates both vertical and horizontal motion, and features stable functioning altitude and azimuth bearings with tension adjustments, Delrin scope stop for accidental objective "nose dives," and both 3/8-16 and 1/4-20 attachment holes on the azimuth bearing plate's underside.
