Product Description

The TeleVue Gibraltar HD5 mount mates the rock-solid Gibraltar HD tripod with a larger, heavier alt-az head designed for their 5" scopes. The head is an inch wider than the original Tele-Pod version, has larger bearings, and cradle holes to accept the Tele Vue NP127 baseplate as well as all other Tele Vue scopes.

The large bearing surfaces and thick wood legs of the Gibraltar HD tripod handles the load for high power viewing. Leg extensions raise the altitude axis to 5-feet, still ideally sized for use with our Air-Chair observing stool. Scale on leg extensions allows repeatable setting to desired height. A wood accessory tray ties the legs together for rigidity. Built-in pier allows for high-altitude viewing. A bubble-level is integrated into the tripod base. Metal ground spikes with rubber tips are provided. Gibraltar HD5 accepts all accessories including Sky Tour (spacers STS-5002 required to fasten the azimuth encoder cover to the wider baseplate).

Review by:
I really love this mount but for a five inch scope, I have a Tak TSA 120, easy to use and balance but when it comes to fine tuning the final "pointing" its just a bit herky jerky in getting the final drift postion. I have tried several adjustments and smaller scopes but at high mags about the same. I compare this mount to the other two I know well, the half hitch and the Stellarvue M2 (Posted on 10/10/2018)
