Tele Vue Panoramic Advanced Mount w/Ash Tripod & Sky Tour

The Tele Vue Panoramic™ Mount has now been upgraded to include a high quality ash wood Berlebach tripod and triangular wood accessory tray. Tripod legs are constructed from solid wood and offer a cradle height range from 28" to 46". The accessory tray easily attaches to leg spreaders via one attachment knob for additional rigidity. The head and handle are identical to the previous Paroramic Mount model. For Tele Vue's smaller telescopes, the Tele-Pod head that comes with the Panoramic™ Advanced Mount provides handy portability. As before, rubber tipped metal ground spikes are also included.

About Sky Tour


The Tele Vue Sky Tour is a computerized object locating device that works in harmony with TeleVue's mount to place more than 2,000 objects within reach. 2-star alignment allows fixed objects to be viewed quickly without any latitude, longitude, date or time input adjustments. User-friendly Guide mode demonstrates the correct direction to move the scope for centering your target object. Sky Tour provides the Panoramic Advanced Mount with R.A./Dec. digital position readout.
