The Explore FirstLight Twilight Nano is a light-duty alt-azimuth 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 Scientific Twilight Nano mount. As long as your telescope does not exceed 14 pounds and has a 45mm wide (Vixen-Style) Dovetail plate for mounting the telescope to the mount head, you are good to go.
The metal tripod with 1.25" diameter legs, continuously extend from 25.5" to 45" to allow for convenient telescope height from child to adult. The alt-azimuth head's handle gives you full control for very smooth movements and for locking the altitude position. Light and quick to set up, the Explore FirstLight Twilight Nano is perfect for your grab-and-go telescope tube assembly.
