The advantages at a glance
ApplicationsCountryside and animal viewing:
- Still very portable with only 6.3 kg weight incl. tripod.
- More stable than comparable mounts, the GSAZ takes instruments with up to 9 kg.
- Viewing height continuously adjustable from 900 mm up to 1300 mm.
- Practical mounting of instruments with GP style saddle plate.
- Binoculars and spotting scopes with upright viewing can be attached via an optional L-Bracket.
- Especially helpful - the fork arm can be tilted by 45°. Then you can also use longer telescopes and easily tilt them to the zenith.
Set up and get started - that is possible with the GSAZ. The height-adjustable aluminum tripod allows for a flexible viewing height of 900 mm to 1300 mm. Attach your binoculars (with the optional L bracket) or your spotting scope to the mount and you have the complete range of panning and tilting. Swivel to the target, for example a bird in its nest, within seconds, and then place the object exactly into the middle with the fine adjustment.
The GSAZ is an outstanding mount for beginners, but also for amateur astronomers who are looking for a portable astronomical mount for quick deployment. No polar alignment necessary - just place it and get started. However, all possibilities for a successful astronomical observation are at your disposal. With the fine adjustment, you can center moon and planets easily at 300x magnification, and swivels up to the zenith are also possible.
Connect your telephoto lens to the mount. The GSAZ is an outstanding alternative to photo tripods. The GSAZ is more stable than most of them and it has a fine adjustment which deserves this name. The GSAZ is a true gear head. The mount allows fast pannings, for example at sport events, but also precise centering if you want to stage an object perfectly with a long telephoto lens.
A special plus of the GSAZ is that you can remove the fork arm from the base within seconds. By doing this, you get two units suitable for air travel which can be reassembled again within seconds.
