Tele Vue Tele-Pod Manual Altazimuth Telescope Mount (w/o Tripod)

B&H # TETPH Mfr # TPH-1016
You Pay: $270.00
Product Highlights
  • Requires Tripod
  • Made in USA

This is only the head to the Tele-Pod telescope mount, and does not include the legset.

The self contained Tele Vue Tele-Pod Manual Altazimuth Telescope Mount can be used on any camera tripod with either a 1/4"-20 or 3/8"-16 threaded tripod screw, and offers smooth alt/az movement for smaller telescopes.  The Eyepiece Caddy Set accessory is highly recommended, since the Tele-Pod Telescope Mount and standard camera tripods don't have accessory trays.  This is a great head to use with many different spotting scopes for celestial and terrestrial observing.

      Comments about Tele Vue Tele-Pod Manual Altazimuth Telescope Mount (w/o Tripod):

      I bought this telescope mount for my husband's birthday. He had previously purchased a high-priced camera tripod head that didn't adequately support his Televue 85. The Tele-Pod exceeded his expectations. It is beautifully made, pans fluidly and completely balances the telescope. Highly recommend!
