Designed for refractors up to 152mm aperture and reflectors of up to 203mm, Bresser's Exos-2 German Equatorial Mount with Tripod combines a manual EQ mount with a sturdy stainless steel tripod to provide users with a stable and reliable observational platform. The mount can hold OTAs and accessories up to 29 pounds, and it features a GP-level dovetail saddle for compatible OTAs, dual-axis slow motion cables to more easily track objects, and an integrated bubble level to assist in set-up. To make set-up and alignment faster and easier, Bresser includes an illuminated polar finder scope for use in the Northern hemisphere.
The tripod is built with large 2" diameter stainless steel legs and tight tolerances to reduce vibration for clearer viewing. A center stabilizer bar pulls the accessory tray up to lock the legs in place adding further rigidity and vibration reduction. It is adjustable from 29 to 49" to accommodate a wide range of users and features large thumbscrews for tool-free adjustment in the field. An adjustable plastic tray is also included with the tripod to keep eyepieces, flashlights, and other accessories safe and at the ready. Optional accessories are available for this mount including dual axis motors and a Go-To kit.
