Tele Vue's Tele-Pod Alt-Az Telescope Mount is a convenient, easy to use, travel mount for telescope OTAs up to about 76mm for astronomical use, and 85mm for terrestrial. The Tele-Pod combines the size, weight and flexibility of a photo tripod with the smooth, balanced altitude/azimuth motions of a yoke-and-cradle mount head. Tension-adjustable axes provide smooth motion for finding and tracking subjects without the need to constantly work locking knobs. Its offset tilt axis avoids interference between head and tripod.

The included tripod features a 22 lb load capacity, 28-64.2" height range, anodized aluminum construction, and switchable 1/4-20 to 3/8-16 camera adapter. Each leg has three sections and stand on rubberized feet for better traction. The top of the legs has foam covers for a more comfortable grip in cold and wet conditions. To lock the legs at different angle settings use the latches located at the top joint of each leg. The height can be locked with a knob lock and the center post raises and lowers independent of the legs to fine-tune OTA and eyepiece height for each observer.
