The ultimate "grab-and-go" companion for your portable telescope, the new TwiLight I Altaz Mount from Explore Scientific has geared slow motions with flexible cable controls for fine altitude and azimuth adjustments. Its sturdy metal continuously adjustable-height tripod will withstand years of rugged use.
This mount, with its adjustable angle head, provides a lighter and more versatile alternative to ES's TwiLight II mount. It has all the smoothness and versatility of its dual head cousin in just one head, making it smaller, lighter, and providing you with the mobility and ease that you desire. The TwiLight I is a perfect choice for all of your viewing needs and it is made with all the special care and craftsmanship of all Explore Scientific products.
The TwiLight I is perfect for the Explore Scientific ED80, ED102, AR102, and Bresser Messier Series telescopes. It's also a great choice for most brand small-to-medium telescopes that use a Vixen-style dovetail mounting plate. Although designed for small-to-medium size telescopes, heavier telescopes (e.g. ED127, and Comet Hunter) may also be used with the TwiLight I where larger tripods and mounts cannot be transported (e.g. during travel expeditions, etc).
