The Orion SkyView Pro Equatorial Telescope Mount sets a new standard for stability, precision control and affordability in a mount designed for the demanding amateur astronomer. A step up in rigidity and load capacity from the SkyView Deluxe mount, the "SVP" supports telescope tubes weighing up to 20 lbs. Its all-metal head features enclosed 360-degree worm gears plus large, 86mm-diameter setting circles for easy object location by celestial coordinates.
Telescopes attach via a quick-release dovetail plate (included). The head glides effortlessly in right ascension and declination. Dual slow-motion knobs allow manual fine control and an optional TrueTrack single- or dual-axis DC drive can be added for electronic tracking and photographic guiding. Other features include an azimuth fine adjustment and a latitude scale. The mount accepts an optional polar-alignment scope.
