TS AZ5 Alt-azimuthal Mount with fine adjustment in both axes

The AZ5 from TS Optics is the most stable alt-azimuthal mount with fine adjustment in our product range.

The AZ5 offers features not available at other alt-azimuthal mounts. Attach heavy telescopes to the mount and enjoy the precise fine adjustment in both axes. The mount is also sold as SKYTEE, among other names.

The TSAZ5 can accomodate two different instruments in parallel. Of course, both ones will take part in all turns. Thus you can attach the main instrument to the main axis and binoculars or a finder to the 90° offset side axis. If the second instrument is a bit heavier, change the position of the counterweight shaft and gain perfect balance. All counterweights with 20 mm bores (Vixen, Meade, Skywatcher ...) fit, but they should not have a diameter which is to big.

The advantages of the TSAZ5 in summary:


♦ maximum load 20 kg, at full stability
♦ fine adjustment with clamping in both axes
♦ telescope mounting with robust quick coupling with area clamping
♦ further attaching with 90° offset for binoculars or spotting scopes - up to 5 kg can be kept in balance
♦ counterweight shaft included in delivery, can be attached in two positions
♦ with versatile tripod connection, fits to tripods from Vixen, Skywatcher, Meade, Celestron ...
