Tele Vue Gibraltar HD5 Alt-Az Mount & Tripod w/Sky Tour - G5S-5018
Tele Vue Gibraltar HD5 Alt-Az Mount & Tripod
Because portability and usability are design objectives for all Tele Vue scopes, the Gibraltar HD5 Mount has also been produced with these qualities in mind. TeleVue's yoke and cradle design provides balanced, smooth movements.
This sturdy Gibraltar HD5 Alt-Az Mount's larger, heavier head is an excellent match for Tele Vue's 5" optical tubes. The head is an inch wider than TeleVue's first Tele-Pod, and features larger bearings and cradle holes to receive the Tele Vue NP127 baseplate along with other TeleVue telescopes. Large bearing surfaces and thick wood tripod legs are equipped to take on these payloads, particularly for high power observing.
Leg extensions lift the altitude axis up to five feet, the perfect height for use with Tele Vue's Air-Chair observing stool. Scale on these leg extensions allows duplicated height setting. A wood accessory tray binds the legs together for stability. Integrated pier enables high-altitude viewing. Additionally, a bubble-level is built into the tripod base. Sky tour compatible.

- Weight: 22.9 lbs.
- Height Range: 42" to 60"
- Altitude Range: +80º to -12º
- Suggested Telescope: NP127is
