Whether you're looking to upgrade from your present telescope mount or are seeking a more robust equatorial system for your new telescope, you can't go wrong with the smooth-moving, sturdy Orion AstroView EQ. Its newly designed equatorial head has a dovetail attachment plate similar to that on the Orion SkyView Pro, Sirius, and Atlas mount heads. The AstroView supports up to a 5" refractor tube and has enclosed worm gears, an azimuth adjustment, and dual manual slow-motion controls. Hinged center brace adds stability to the all-aluminum adjustable tripod. Includes polar alignment scope and high-walled accessory tray. EQ-3M single- and dual-axis computerized drive systems are available separately. Weighs 27.5 lbs.
