Used Stellarvue M1 Deluxe Mount- UT-11782 - SOLD-
UT-11782: Stellarvue's alt-azimuth (AZ) mounts are among the best on the market. They have acquired a fine reputation for stability and quickly damping unwanted vibrations. Stellarvue offers three alt-azimuth mounts in their current line. These mount heads are available with tripods to match and are intended for use with Stellarvue refractor telescopes of various sizes. Of course, these mounts can be used with other brand telescopes of similar size and weight. The MG mount, for example, is very appropriate for the Celestron Omni XLT 102 and 102ED telescopes. Telescopes are typically attached to these Stellarvue mounts by means of a Vixen dovetail rail, with Losmandy mounting plates an optional alternative.
Beginners, as well as advanced amateur astronomers, find the up/down and right/left movements of AZ mounts easy to aim for a quick look at both celestial and terrestrial objects. Even if you already own a high quality equatorial mount for your astronomical telescope, a high quality AZ mount is a worthwhile alternative and these Stellarvue alt-azimuth mounts are among the best.
Lightweight M1 Mount
The smallest mount head is the M1, intended for use with the carbon fiber Raptor 90mm and all Stellarvue 70mm-80mm clear aperture refractors. These telescopes weigh up to about six pounds. The M1 is a simple, friction type AZ mount head, but entirely suitable for these short tube refractors and catadioptric (CAT) optical tubes of similar clear aperture and weight.
