Sky Watcher Multi-Function Mount with Tripod Product Info

Sky Watcher Multi-Function Mount with Tripod S21300 is a multifunction mount for small telescopes, spotting scopes and cameras. The Multifunction Mount provides excellent point-and-view astronomical tracking, and automatic terrestrial land surveys.

In Astronomical Mode, the Sky Watcher MultiMount just needs to be set-up, pointed at an astronomical body in the sky, and the mount will automatically follow the object. This feature eliminates the need to make manual adjustments to your telescopes constantly while observing.

In Terrestrial Mode, the Sky-Watcher MultiMount can allow land surveys for 6 different locations. The built-in software memorizes positions the telescope is pointed to, and can automatically go back to these positions on demand (via the terrestrial "cruise" button) making it a diverse telescope mount and telescope tripod.

The Sky Watcher Multi Function Mount S21300 includes an electronic hand controller to precisely control the DC-Servo motors on each axis for smooth, accurate vertical and horizontal movement. With the MultiMount by Sky Watcher, you can adjust the speed of tracking from 1x guide speed for compensating for Earth's rotation, all the way to 800x for making large adjustments in seconds with your telescope.

Specifications for Sky Watcher AZ4 Mount & Tripod S-21300:

Batteries: 8 AA-size batteries

Features of Sky-Watcher AZ4 Mount and Tripod:

  • Designed for both astronomical and terrestrial observation with automation features
  • Guide speed (1x) compensates for the Earth's rotation making stars stand-still. Slow speed (4x) allows ultra-fine position changes to center objects in the eyepiece or Viewfinder. Fast (8x) speed allows relatively quick gross incremental changes in location. With tracking mode turned off, the Guide speed accelerates to 32x; Slow speed to 64x; and Fast becomes a speed-demon at 800x.
  • Latitude scale for adjustment of the telescopes equatorial orientation during the set-up process to facilitate more accurate tracking
  • Accommodates telescopes, most spotting scopes, cameras, video camcorders, and binoculars with 1/4" 20-thread receptors.
  • Tripod has a unique 3/8" screw threaded bolt that threads into the base of the telescope. (Note: a regular photo-tripod with 1/4", 20 thread attachment screw will be too small to be compatible with MultiMount's 3/8" threads.)

Package Contents:

  • Sky Watcher AZ4 Mount and Tripod S21300
  • Cable for imaging while in terrestrial cruise & shot mode using a compatible digital camera
  • L-bracket is provided for attachment of most cameras, camcorders, and spotting scopes with 1/4", 20-thread receptors
