Mounting the Apertura 60 mm APO Refractor is easy. It comes with a fitted hinged ring that drops down to a sturdy foot with 1/4-20 threads. Simply attach the 60EDR to a photographic tripod for the ultimate in portability, or attach the foot to a dovetail that will fit your alt-azimuth or equatorial mount. Alternatively, you can always connect the Apertura 60EDR to a larger OTA via a dovetail and use it as a guide scope. Lastly, remove the hinged ring, get yourself a larger finder bracket (measure the largest diameter to make sure the scope fits inside) and voila, you have an outstanding finderscope with the ability to accept multiple eyepieces, including an illuminated reticle model.
