Explore Scientific Twilight Nano Alt-Az Mount & Tripod
Included with this FirstLight Twilight Nano Alt-Azimuth Mount by Explore Scientific is a durable steel ST1 tripod with 1.25" diameter legs. This tripod has a minimum height of 25.5" and can extend to 45". The included handle allows for smooth, precise movements.
A lightweight alt-azimuth mount and tripod, the Twilight Nano is designed to conveniently accept modest scopes, such as small Mak-Cassegrains, small refractors, small solar scopes, and, naturally, the ED80. Short, fast Newtonians are also suitable for the Explore Scientific Twilight Nano. So long as the weight of your telescope is not over 14 pounds and has a Vixen-style Universal Dovetail bar for mounting the optical tube to the mount head, you are set.
