About mount performance:

Great telescopes are built from the ground up.
Any compromises will show up in the eyepiece.

Our mounts feature smooth easy motion, stop on a dime and remain still at high magnification.

We use Baltic Birch plywood for vibration-free strength, endurance and weight reduction. Virgin Teflon riding on select Formica laminate provides smooth sure start/stop motion. Our large bearings improve balance and provide fine incremental movement. Whether cost, height, weight or transport is your top requirement, we will design a mount for your specific needs.

Kits designed for simple assembly, even for beginners.

 

Mount stands for raising your eyepiece height.

Optionally available integrated into Astrogoods mounts.

All AstroGoods mounts are designed for minimize weight.








"Wanted to say how pleased I am with the custom folding dob base. Altitude bearings fit like a glove. Total weight 23 lbs, 10 lbs lighter than the particle board OEM base." - DH. Apertura AD12"








"Assembly was very easy. I took it out to view M42, and the mount is solid with buttery motion. It took off a solid 7.5" of height and 20-30 lbs!" - Robert K. 10" f/7
