SkyWatcher AZ5 Mount (Without Tripod)

Introducing the new SkyWatcher AZ5 ultraportable mount without tripod and extension column. It’s the most affordable and revolutionary solution for the nomadic astronomer!


The SkyWatcher AZ5 mount is designed to provide versatility and ease of use for astronomers who are constantly on the move. Its altazimuth design allows for simple up-down and left-right movements without the need for polar alignment. With its 2 symmetrically positioned control knobs, you can achieve precise fine-tuning even when observing at high magnifications. For maximum pointing speed, the mount can be manually directed in both axes by releasing the brakes.

With a payload capacity of 5 kg (with an optional male Vixen-style dovetail), you can use binoculars up to 100-120mm in diameter or Maksutov telescopes up to 127mm, and even small Newtonian reflectors (note the tube length in the latter case). The retractable aluminum tripod is easily transportable. It’s a perfect combination (mount + tripod) for the nomadic observer!
