Shipping Calculator

The saxon AZ5 mount with Steel Tripod is a light but heavy duty alt-azimuth mount. It is designed to carry small and medium sized telescopes and spotting scopes up to 8kgs. This portable mount is made of powder-coated aluminium and with smooth worm gears on both altitude and azimuth axes.

The adjustable arm can be tilted to multiple angles (45°, 90° & 135°), allowing you to use your telescope in different ways (e.g. observing at the zenith). Slow-motion controls come in both axes, which assist in fine tuning and keeping track of targeted objects.

An allen key is provided and stored behind the fork arm with a magnet. Adjustments to the mount are easy and hassle-free as the allen key is easily accessible and safely stored with the mount.

The adjustable steel tripod legs can be adjusted from 70cm to 130cm (excluding the height of the mount). The provided accessory tray not only keeps your eyepiece(s) in place but also secures the tripod legs to enhance the stability of the mount and minimise the impact of surrounding vibrations.

The hollow section of the arm allows for easy carrying and, weighning just 7kgs, makes for an incredibly portable mount.
