This Tele Vue Advanced Tele-Pod with Encoders installed is a complete, lightweight telescope mount featuring smooth alt-azimuth motions and included encoders to add object locating capability. It is an Az-El type mount on a tripod with adjustable 3-section legs. This combination is perfect for using with the Tele Vue smaller, travel-friendly refractor telescopes. Telescope height ranges from 29" to 60+". Aluminum tripod legs are 3-section, black anodized, with rubber-tipped feet and spiked feet included. Features include a bubble-level, glove-friendly locking clamps, and also an included carry bag.
The self contained head comes with a pan-handle, includes installed encoders, and the aluminum tripod as shown in the photo. It is the most portable Digital Setting Circle-ready mount head available. This combined assembly is the original Tele Vue Az-El mount head combined with the Tele-Pod Tripod and with the included pair of axis encoders.

The Tele Vue encoder mount packages include encoders which have been pre-installed on Tele Vue mounts along with the cables necessary to work with your Digital Setting Circles or computer (DSC / Computer).
