Televue Gibraltar HD4 Mount
Created as a steady, portable platform for all kinds of refractor OTA's with apertures ranging up to 4", Tele Vue's Gibraltar HD4
Alt-AZ Mount was designed with a Tele-pod head and a beautiful, custom designed just for this model Berlebach ash wood tripod. Not only
is this tripod made with large bearing surfaces and strong, thick legs able to easily handle heavy loads with minimal vibration, it's
reserved design is sedate and functional above anything else. The legs can raise the altitude axis within a range of 3.5 to 5 feet, and
the markings on the legs make it easy to repeatably set your prefered heights in place. In another quality design feature, there is
a wooden accessory tray tying the legs together to stabilize the entire setup, adding a firm rigidity to the mount when fully setup.
The built in pier takes this design further; not only adding extra height to the mount to provide a more comfortable viewing position
for the user, but also allowing whatever OTA you have mounted to be aimed at or near the zenith without any risk of hitting the tripod.
Finally, there is a bubble-level integrated into the tripod base- in conjunction with the rubber tipped metal ground spikes, these features
grant an added level of stability when mounted on soft ground.
