Do you want a portable, easy to use simple to set up no Fuss, Grab-and-Go Telescope Mounting that you can use for astronomy as well as daytime terrestrial use? The the new Sky-Watcher AZ PRONTO may fir the bill.

It is a lightweight, highly portable Alt-Azimuth mount constructed from cast aluminium, designed to attach small telescopes up to 3kg in weight, fitted with a 45mm dovetail bar. The aluminium telescopic tripod legs can be extended and clamped in any position using the integral leg locks. Supplied with two flexible slow-motion cables, one for vertical and one for horizontal smooth fine motion control. The slow motion cables can be positioned in a choice of two different positions on each axis, making it convenient to control both refractor and reflector telescopes. The mount can also be moved around each axis manually, for rapid panning and elevation adjustments. Accurately tracks distant moving objects with ease. This delightfully convenient and well engineered grab-and-go mounting is suitable for both terrestrial observations and astronomical viewing.

The lightweight but sturdy tripod uses a 3/8" [large tripod thread] type connection bolt so the tripod is also ideal for mounting the SkyWatcher Star Adventurer or Star Adventurer Mini. The photo below shows our display Star Adventurer on the AZ Pronto tripod.
