    Celestron 93607 reviews

    Heavy-Duty Manual Alt-Azimuth Mount with Tripod is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 49.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Celestron AltAz Mount Overall the quality of the mount is good. It serves the purpose of a terrestrial mount better than an astronomical mount. The control knob for altitude is somewhat limited in range of movement. To view objects higher in the sky you must use a wrench (not supplied) to loosen a nut on the mount to move the head upward. Too bad that a large knob was not provided instead of a naked nut to make this adjustment. I would recommend the mount for terrestrial viewing and would only recommend it with reservations for astronomical use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tripod The tripod works great but had several broken parts when it arrived. The tripod was packaged perfectly, however, there were two broken plastic leg connectors to the tripod mount. They were both broken in the same place. It looks like a design error. Aluminum would work so much better. Instead of shipping back, I used contact cement and it is holding great. I am not using the tripod for binoculars. If I were, it would have gotten only one star. It is being used for a Vixen Polarie camera tracker. Once I have it set for Polaris, the vertical axis never has to be moved besides some fine adjustment. It handles the Polarie just perfectly and it is so much less expensive than other alternatives.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid platform, micro adjustment knobs are a nice feature Provides a platform stable enough for a 20-60x Spotting scope. The micro adjust knobs are useful for tracking slowly moving objects and centering the object of interest. The only current issue I have us the vertical position staying fixed when I have a camera attached to the spotting scope and am looking at something high in the sky. Thus may be something that can be fixed by adjusting the nut on the side, but so far thus has not worked for me. No issues with stability for roughly horizontal viewing.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The Celestron Heavy Duty Altazimuth Tripod is a durable, but not heavy, inexpensive, and easy to use spotting scope mount with lots of fine (MOA) controls It is NOT an astrological telescope mount: It lacks significant elevation control. I have used this product daily for over a month and it's stable, a little bulky, but overall transportable and easy to use with great fine tuning ability thanks to the screw adjustment controls. Great product for anyone doing wildlife or birding photography, or needing a spotting scope mount with significant control. Can be used for astrological telescope due to its stability and micro azimuth and elevation control so long as the subject isn't much above 20 degrees above the horizon.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Underrated tripod I purchased this tripod for astrophotography using a C90 MAK. Very good way to track planets, stars, etc using the AltAz knobs. It is very sturdy and stable even with a small dc fan clamped to the square legs produced no vibration (fan is used to cool a Pen 7 camera). Some reviewers have expressed dismay about having to use a wrench to change the Alt, NOT SO, behind that big nut (19mm) is a lock washer, use it as a tension spring, tighten or loosen it as to be able move the mounting plate with your hand when you run out of adjustment. You should only have to do this once. I did put numeral markers on the legs to mimic Celestrons Nexstar tripods. The braces on the legs add nothing but as a parking place for a Bud or Coke. This is alot of tripod bang for the buck. You will pay 3x more for a comparable tripod.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent tripod for the weight and price Rapid adjustments are clumsy, but the fine adjustments work nicely. Once you are close, just turn the knobs. The head is solid, and the legs are rigid considering the weight and price, but more damping would help. I am thinking about improving the damping by either filling the legs with foam, or replacing them with wood.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this telescope mount I recently purchased a 127mm Maksutov-Cassegrain telescope which weights 8 1/2 pounds.I wanted a grab and go setup and this tripod/mount completed the perfect setup. I could not be happier. Within a few minutes I can be set up outside and having fun. The tripod is so simple to use. The slow-motion controls are smooth. The mount is very stable. With B&H fast service and free shipping I would not hesitate to this product again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for small scopes As with Charles said in his review, I have a Celestron Travel Scope 70. This is the perfect tripod for small scopes. I use it for astronomy and I can't understand why people said they can not look at the zenith. I can take the mount fully vertical. I loosened the 3/4 inch nut just slightly to where I can manually move the altitude but it is still rigid enough to stay in place. Even with a 90 degree mirror diagonal, a barlow and a quite heavy eyepiece, the altitude stayed in place. The fine adjustment knobs are right at arms length and work like a dream when following a planet as it tracks across the sky. Height is not an issue as I normally sit for long sessions of observing. I marked the legs using a tape measure and sharpie so I know that all the legs are set at the same length. This also assists when I adjust the height while observing. As stated earlier I use a 90 degree diagonal so I lower the legs when looking at an object close to the horizon, and raise them when looking at objects higher in the sky. I was at a star party over the weekend and one of my astronomy club members who has thousands of dollars invested in his setup fell in love and was raving about the quality and easy of use of this mount and tripod. Would absolutely recommend this for anyone with a small scope.
