Explore Scientific FirstLight EXOS Nano German Equatorial Head Mount and Tripod; 1.25" Sturdy Steel ST1 Tripod with legs that extend from 25.5" to 45".
The EXOS Nano is a light-duty German Equatorial mount and tripod designed to quickly and easily accept small scopes, such as a small Mak-Cassegrain, small Refractor or small Solar Scope and of course, the ED80mm. Lightweight. Short, fast Newtonians will also match up nicely with the Explore FirstLight EXOS Nano mount. As long as your telescope does not exceed 15 pounds and has a Vixen-Style Universal Dovetail bar for mounting the telescope to the mount head, you are good to go.
The mount (without counterweight) weighs 10 pounds.
