M150400M150 Isostatic Mount

This is our largest mount and tripod. We manufacture it in our Auburn, California shop using 6061-t6 aluminum and stainless steel. Mount a 130 on one side and a 90 on the other. It will glide effortlessly around the sky.  

Each axis uses both stainless roller bearings and Teflon thrust bearings offering extremely rigid yet butter smooth movement. Delrin faced clamping rings allow the user to set tension and hold telescopes in place at any angle. One can tighten the mount solid but the real joy comes from having it loose enough to move effortlessly with the slightest push, yet tight enough that it stops when and where you want it.

Forget about slow motion controls as you glide around the sky. Yes, most mounts need them but this one is just silky smooth, massive and a joy to use.

PRODUCT SPECS

Stellarvue M150-2 Mount Alt Azimuth Dual Mount Head

This is a solid and smooth Isostatic mount providing a substantial  improvement over smaller dual mount units on the market. The ergonomics, bearings, load capacity and smoothness of the M150 is unsurpassed. The new M150 head weighs only 17 pounds but has a 45 pound capacity with adjustment and locking ability in both azimuth and altitude. This will make it easy when you have variable loads and you want to observe with different sized telescopes simultaneously. The massive alt azimuth mount has a 6" azimuth bearing surface, over-sized Teflon and stainless roller bearings on each axis. Adjust tension on both axis and you simply glide through the sky smoothly and stop completely when you arrive at the object. This mount must be experienced to be appreciated. No more pushing a mount that sticks or shoots past the object. Glide effortlessly  from one object to the next. This latest version has independent adjustment locks with levers that have clutches to vary the degree of tension even better. This mount is so smooth that slow motion controls are redundant.  Counterweights and precise balancing  is not necessary.
