Tele Vue Tele-Pod Alt-Az Yoke Mount (Head Only)

Tele Vue Tele-Pod Overview

Tele Vue designed their Tele-Pod Alt-Az Yoke Mount for smooth and balanced tracking for optical tube assemblies (OTAs) up to 3" in aperture. It is configured as a dual-fork yoke mount that cradles your OTA at its center of balance for smooth pan/tilt motion with reduced vibrations and smooth-motion altitude and azimuth bearings with tension adjustments. A single control handle enables precise control without the associated vibrations that normally come with moving a mount by hand.

The unique design allows for the OTA to move through an 85 to -10° altitude range from below the horizon (such as viewing from a hilltop) all the way close to the zenith. A scope-stop helps to prevent damage if the objective end "nosedives" down. The Tele-Pod is offered here as a mount head only and comes equipped with 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 mounting treads for easy attachment to most photo, video, field, or astronomical tripods. Mounting holes on the azimuth plate are pre-drilled for 1/4"-20 and 3/8"-16 bolts for attaching OTAs.
