Get our best, new M2C mount head with heavy duty column and the heavy duty stainless steel tripod and save $74! This is the newest, ultra-smooth grab and go set up for our refractors from the SV70T to the SV130.
The heavy duty stainless steel tripod has an underside brace that holds eyepieces. The tripod weighs 20 pounds but has a large capacity. It is made by Celestron for the CGEM mount. The attachment bolt is M12 X 1.75. Both the column and the mount head are precision made in the USA in our shop. The head now includes precision ground stainless shafts, stainless steel roller bearings and a big 3" teflon bearing on each axis.
With the M2C mount head with dual Vixen and Losmandy style shoe and the MEC12 column attached, the telescope will sit 42" - 64" high when postioned horizontally, depending on how far the tripods legs are extended. The complete mounting set up will hold a 25 pound telescope.
The total weight for the tripod, column and mount head is 25 pounds.
