Tele Vue Adjustable Mount AAM-0001 offers you quick and easy installation of TeleVue-60 OTA Telescope TVO-2460 to Schmidt Cassegrain telescopes with 8" scopes such as Celestron CGEM 800 8" Schmidt Cassegrain Computerized Telescope 11097, Celestron CGE 800 Telescope w/ StarBright XLT coatings 11058-XLT or larger for use as a "superfinder". X-Y Axis Adjustable Mount from Televue allows you to collimate the optical axis of the TeleVue-60 precisely with the optical axis of the larger scope so that the two scopes are aimed at the same point in the sky.
TeleVue X-Y Mount has the large knob that acts as a pivot for the 2 horizontal adjustment screws that move the dovetail with its attached TV-60 from side to side. The lock knob simultaneously acts as the lock knob for the vertical "jack screw" adjustment that moves the dovetail and Televue 60 up and down. By adjusting the locking knob and various screws while looking alternately through your scope and the TV-60 Telescope, you can precisely aim the optical axis of the Telescope TV 60 at the same point in that your optical tube assembly is aimed.
When you're done for the night, just remove the TeleVue X-Y Adjustable Mount dovetail's stop screws and remove the TeleVue-60 Telescope. It is now ready to mount on a photo tripod for terrestrial observing or to use as a smaller telescope. With careful handling, your alignment and collimation should remain between mountings and if alignment is required, just a few simple adjustments are all it takes.
